What a nice, peaceful night in here. And this morning, although very cool it was a beautiful and sunshiny. We were up early uploading a blog and Mike and Jim went to talk to a local fisherman about the best time to leave for Yarmouth. We headed out at 08:30. Shouldn’t every Grampie have a boat like this? And look at this tuna boat. A guy sits up in this seat to spot the tuna and then a guy from the bow throws the harpoon.
Mike helped Jim install his new windlass while Cheryl and I checked out the shops in the town. We had supper Rudder’s Seafood and it was very good. We talked with Sydney, the marina manager about the best time to leave for Grand Manan NB with the Bay of Fundy tides. The sun was setting when we dingied back to the boats. Persuasion and Amazing Grace were sitting pretty on their moorings.
Mike and Jim checked the winds and weather and I called my brother, Peter to let him know we would be in Grand Manan tomorrow. It was decided we would leave by 04:30 am to get the push with the tide. Looking forward to seeing Peter, Kim and kids.
Today we travelled 28 nm.
