Daylight comes early here…light at 03:50.
Sunrise at Mont-Louis
Got everyone up at 4 to head out. Hey, when the Admiral says its time to go, we go! Shoved off the dock at 4:38. Hey, at least there is sun today! What a sunrise and the scenery here is incredible. My photos do not do it justice. The jib was up and smooth sailin’. We sailed by our most northerly point at 49d:16m:09s at 05:58. Heading south now….gotta get warmer, right?
We are realizing what we have known all along …..Quebec is truly beautiful, La belle province! Having lived on the West Island in Kirkland, we did alot of sightseeing. Also, when driving through to NB many times, we see the different landscapes and comment on how beautiful it is. From the water you see even more beauty of the coastlines. It is spectacular.
We got on a dock in Rivere au Renard at 12:45. Winds were SW 20+, and a high boat speed of 10.6. Quite a nice little club with new docks and hoping to get all their power and water to the slips within 10 days. Since we had neither, we got a deal on our stay for the night. A very nautical, cute little place inside.
Bonus….wifi where we could upload our blog from last few days and FaceTime. Didn’t get through to everyone. Missing all the kids and grandkids. Beautiful showers and a great laundry room (We needed it after our wild ride to get into Mont-Louis. We only realized after our first night there that water had come in through the anchor well and onto shelf in the V berth. Eventually it leaked down onto the bed and into one of the clothing lockers). Grrrr Oh well, Cèst la vie! There was lots of warm sunshine to dry things while we walked around, bought some salmon fillets to barbecue and by evening we had a dry mattress, clean bedding and clean dry clothes.
Today we travelled 59.4 nm
