We weighed anchor at 09:30 in light rain and 20-25 kn SW wind. The tide was just starting to go out so we didn’t have to be quite so careful staying in the channel. The ride was rolly for awhile but we still motor sailed.
We called the marina here and they said they could accommodate us. Arrived at 12:30. We had a chuckle on the way in to dock. We saw a huge yacht on the dock and Mike said “To think we were worried they wouldn’t have room for us”. Turned out it was a yacht that a crew had delivered from Florida. They came in here with her on the weekend and the owners arrived yesterday. They plan to sail around the east coast and then take her to Bahamas. Hey, maybe we will see them again along the way! It is 101 ft long and is the largest boat they have ever had in this little marina. Apparently it was in the paper. so many locals are down here snapping shots of it. Hey kids, it reminds me of the yacht in the movie Overboard.
What a great little place…it is a tourist info centre and marina, along with a café and restaurant. Had a shower and walked to Sobey’s. Later, we walked up and ordered a pizza for supper from a local shop here that was recommended. Yummy! In the evening we walked up the hill for an ice cream. Cute little gazebo with a deck, lights, benches and it overlooks the harbour.
For those of you who are tracking us on marinetraffic.com, you will notice that we finally moved. It showed us in Cap Chat for so long. When we arrived in Charlottetown, it finally changed to show us there. And yes, it shows us to still be there. Probably it will show us there until we get to Cape Breton if we get picked up by signals. If not there, in Halifax for sure.
Today we only travelled 18.3 nm.
