Nathalie has done her job excellently here! Yay for Nathalie! She's taken lots of photos to document the Bill's time in Vancouver. PLUS... our beloved ex-bosun Rich Sloat and his supersailor girlfriend Hallie Duke stopped by to say Hello!

For the transit from Vancouver to Port Alberni we participated in a crew exchange with Pallada.  We gave them Nick and Bryce and they gave us the Jenyas.  (From left to right is Jenya #2 and Jenya #1)

The bill plays host to Movie Stars in Vancouver.  Burt Renolds and the actress Leelee Sobieski came and moored alongside the bill and then toured the boat.  Even our own MacGregor was a little star struck

No transit would be complete without anchoring off of some remote spot so we can use and abuse the hospitality of the locals.  We offered them dinner, they offered us use of their dock and hot tub. As soon as I have a card reader suitable I will post picture of the fun that happened here. Unfortunatly my camera battery died right after taking this picture.  J



 



Will send you more soon from Port Alberni.

Hi Crew of the Bill of Rights... Thanks for stopping in on your way in and out as we really enjoyed your company. We are glad that the Port Alberni festival was that good.
