Off to the Broughton Islands

Pierre no longer owns Pierre's echo bay. He sold it. I was anxious to see how things were going there. I realize that the clientele has been reduced with the borders closed so I was hopeful that we could get a reservation and a one night stay. We were able to do so.



In fact, the docks were nearly empty. A few local fishing boats and a couple of others beside us.


We took the walk over to say hi to Billy Proctor and walked through his museum. It was very much the same as it was 10 years ago.



Tonia, and her eagle eye, found a very interesting boat card on the board:


It appears that my boat has been here in a past life.



The museum is interesting, even after having been there in a prior visit.


In general there was one guy there at Pierre's and it was very quiet. No pig roast or roast beef dinners, the place was just a boat parking lot. I was sad to see that the vibe that was there before was gone. At least for the time being.
