    Hi
    It's been an year since I posted the same question! I am heading to Roche Harbor this Sunday for 3 nights possibly also Sucia.

    We'll be up at Roche this weekend....actually every weekend given that's permanent moorage for us. Headed to Desolation and other point further north for the last two weeks of August.

    Did you make it up to the islands?

    Yup and actually saw your boat as well. The slip had your last name on it but you weren't visible so I decided not to bother you. This was a fantastic trip but we realized we do need a bigger boat to stay longer. IMG_2134.jpg PNW.jpg

    Next time! Great pictures and looks just like another day up here in the boaters playground. Glad you were able to spot the spectacular wildlife. I don't recognize the cove in the last picture?

    Echo bay in Sucia. It was only 40min from Roche Harbor! echobay.jpg

    Oh yeah. That zoomed out picture is now very recognizable to me. Spend many a night in there! Depending on winds and next time you are up there, have a look at Matia Island which is directly across from Echo Bay. You can see Matia in your picture. On that island there are two spots; Rolee Cove and another small cove just to the south of it. The smaller cove to the south does require anchor and a stern tie, but its the best sunsets up there.

    Yeah the first picture was taken with a zoom lens to bring out the beauty of the mountain. The second shot from a drone is much better recognizable. This was one of the best trips but as our family discussed, we would need a bigger boat for anything more than this. :)
