Today we sailed,
faster and farther than expected…
…we locked through
Our first rafting up experience in a lock,
but in spite of the winds,
We were the last of 3 boats to arrive.
The other poor boaters had been waiting 1.5 hours
in all the heat.
We found a quiet little bay
to anchor for the night,
on the Canadian side this time
just past Cornwall
at the beginning of Lake Saint-Francois…
It was a wonderful day,
perfect weather and wind at our back all the way.
…and this is all I have to offer for the day.
The last of the pizza,
Add to that some wine
and dark chocolate
and we had one of our best cockpit suppers ever!
…for one more day of sailing…
…Captain’s turn but I docked…
(Francois’ prize comment: ‘Pretty soon you won’t need me’…as if that would ever happen)
…and Major Pig (ret’d) supervised…
…club’s last race for the season,
but it was like a ballet in slow motion – no wind.
…one other keaner joined us on the lake.
…full sails but very little action.
…did it really matter?
…a resounding NO!
Rest of the evening was spent at our now very frequented and favourite friendly club
BEST SCALLOPED POTATOES!
all you Canucks…
