Reply to Charles who asked:
"Does your chart guide have a ISBN number? I was thinking of searching for a copy on the net."
The no. is ISBN 0-938206-15-X. I've never done that kind of search - do you just use the number or refine the search in some other way?

Susie and I have been discussing the location and names of the coves north of Main Beach, and her first rendition of the layout was on a cocktail napkin. I chose not to use that napkin while conducting my Basic Cruising 2 class from OCC, and we ended up anchoring in Emerald Bay for lunch. I didn't have my Chart Guide with me at the time, and the coastal charts of the area, the ones I have anyway, do not give the names of the coves.
So I dug up my old Chart Guide (now out of print) and scanned the image you see below (I added the red arrows). Now I have proof that we did anchor in Emerald.
Quoting Susie: "Cresent cove is the cove just past Seal Rock, then it's Shaws, Boat canyon, divers cove, rock pile and Main. Irvine and emerald are 2 seperate coves. Irvine has an arch you can walk through (west side) at low tide that takes you to another very little, private, cozy cove."
Thanks Susie. Next time we'll drop the hook in Shaws. Emerald was pretty lumpy from the West swell.
