It was a peaceful night and going to be another beautiful day. Chatted with some people at the club. One couple arrived last night and are leaving today for Halifax. They bought a sailboat in Belleville and after spending a few days in the Thousand Islands and Kingston, they left July 1 to sail her home. Their club is in Shearwater and we are hoping to meet up with them there. They offered us their mooring ball off McNabs Island.
We also passed by the gypsum plant as well as the drywall plant and one of the largest fuel storage plant in North America. The Point Tupper oil/coal/bio-mass generating plant looks defunct and maybe replaced by wind power.
The winds were SW 10-15 kn and we motor sailed. There was some great scenery along the way. On our way up Lennox passage, we saw an abandoned boat on shore and a few feet away from it, we came across one man’s dashed dream.
Then we came to the opening to the Atlantic Ocean, with choices of where we could choose to go…..straight to jolly ole England or a different direction to a port somewhere in Europe or make a wide left turn to go towards the St. Peter’s canal. So of course, we chose the canal.
We motored to Strachan’s Cove, around the bend from the canal and got a great anchorage not far from the marina. We got a good hook and had a relaxing evening looking at photos and choosing some for our blog. And oh yeah, today is our 39th wedding anniversary. We also celebrated our 15th Anniversary in Cape Breton when we were living in Coxheah. Where has the time gone?
Today we travelled 27.2 nm.
