We look for a good anchorage as this will be our resting place for the next 2 weeks. We see beautiful brick buildings along the waterfront and the homes around here are real easy on the eyes! Gorgeous with their own docks and well manicured lawns.
We set the anchor at 15:30 and then go for a dinghy ride. We decide maybe we should move our boat away from a shoreline so we may not have as many bugs and have more breeze. Mike and Jim move the boat and we eat dinner on Amazing Grace. We can’t believe that we are here! As the song goes, LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT!! We were told we should be here at least one week before the show to make sure we would get an anchorage. So our goal was for Oct 5. And we made it by Sept 30! We met up with Amazing Grace in Shelburne, NS on Sept 5 and since then have been moving quickly, some long days covering lots of nautical miles. Tomorrow will be 4 months since we left Stormont Yacht Club for this adventure. Very fitting that we are at the end of Leg 4. The Captain will be updating his log just before leaving here. We will not be doing daily updates but will post a few times from here.
Oh and great news. Amber, Jason and family will be coming next weekend! I bet those kiddies have grown so much in 4 months! So looking forward to seeing them all. And we hear Eric and Elke will be in town for the show as well. It will be nice to see familiar faces.
It was an exciting day and we can’t believe the days are so short now. No alarm in the morning. Hooray!
Today we travelled 48.1 nm.
