There is no anchoring in Mark Bay so some boats came early in order to ensure they could get a mooring buoy. This allowed us to have a BCMS island walk on both Friday and Saturday afternoon. The Pepperdine’s again kindly supplied us with Pizza at their place on Protection Island Friday night. We all enjoyed the lovely views from their deck and socializing with new and old members. Saturday night was the group BBQ on NewCastle Island followed by a spectacular firework display provided by the City of Nanaimo.
