July 31 Baddeck to St. Peter’s via Ben Eoin

Woke up to heavy rain.  Drats!  After breakfast we slipped the lines form the mooring ball and headed into the dock for water and showers.  Motored away at 8:30 and waved goodbye to Winged Spirit from Shediac.  Hoping to see them again before Halifax but with different schedules, we may not.  Have a great summer on the water guys.

Got a shot of the Inverary resort on the way out.  And another shot of Spectacle Island with the Bell Estate in the background.

We passed Maskells Harbour, a popular anchorage.  Rained on and off all day, sometimes it poured. 

Had to snap a photo of this little red church again in Iona.  Got a shot of it on our way to Baddeck as well. Had no wait again this time for the Barra Strait bridge.

We were not sure if we would go to Ben Eoin or not but headed to East Bay.  Passed the ski hill in Ben Eoin.  Remembered our son going to the hill there when we lived in Coxheath.  The new marina there looks beautiful.   However, we decided since it was quite early that we would go back to St. Peter’s for the night.

We passed this church in Big Pond.  That too, was a memory for us from our time in Cape Breton.   Saw this other church along the way in Johns Town.  Guess it must be the day for church photos.  Lots of peaceful and pretty scenery along the way.

We motored past Doctor Island lighthouse again and past the good Samaritan’s camp.  He wasn’t there today to wave at us and luckily we didn’t need help today getting Persuasion off the bottom!

We arrived and anchored at Strachan’s Cove at 18:50.  We had only left here a little over a week ago.  Snapped these photos of the marina and anchorage at sunset.

Today we travelled 57.7 nm.

  1. I remember big pond!! I bet you didn’t think that you would be sailing by there 15+ years later from when we use to go to the beach there.
