Gilles Bay, Texada Island

G. the airport manager invited me to join the fly-in at Gilles Bay on Texada Island, 100 km north of Vancovuer.
Originally I was going Saturday-Sunday. This week end's weather was not goo.
Sunday J. and I took off from Langley with slim prospect. Sure enough the sky, west was dark. We turned south to W.A. state airspace. We hit light showers.
Around north of Bellingham, J. practiced some manouvers, turns left and right. We had to keep close vigilance in case of Langley weather got worse. We monitored their recorded message. As an escape, we checked Boundary Airport's ATIS, too. After all, Boundary is the most familiar one in my mind.
To be true, Langley is a bit alien to me; particularly its short and narrow Runway is my big concern.
My plan is to reduce Mooney recommended 90 miles approach speed down to 80. I'll do it gradually anyway.
