There’s a bumper sticker popular in wine country — “I Brake for Wine” — to which my wife, Risa, and I can relate. We have our own version of it for Freelance, our 21-foot Monaro cuddy cabin: “We ANCHOR for Wine!” I’m a life-long boater and enjoy seafaring. Risa, a food-and-wine writer, is drawn
to sampling local produce and vintages. With more than a dozen easily
reached vineyards as well as 200 islands offering charming anchorages,
breaching orcas, jabbering sea lions, and playful river otters, Canada’s Gulf
Islands perfectly combines our interests.
