SEAWORTHY BEFORE OPERATIONAL
“A boat must be proclaimed seaworthy
before it can be deemed operational”
…and with our continued battery problems,
we can clearly state that we are not fully operational.
Our intent was to make a side journey to Prince Edward County
to visit family,
but it was becoming increasingly clear that
it wasn’t our best plan.
We decided today after leaving Clayton
to head to Canadian waters
spending the next few days
making our way home.
…our exact point of crossing…
We docked at Gananoque for a pumpout.
Probably because it is the last four days of the Quebec
the harbour was really busy.
But we docked at the Municipal Dock for an hour
so we could check back in to Canadian Customs
(smooth sailing in that regard, thankfully)
then headed out from the bedlam.
After trying several locations we found this little piece of heaven
near Stave Island,
away from the busy channel
and secure from the wind…
We are getting a little low on provisions
so I decided to make some more Naan bread…
…heated the water in the setting sun…
…made a good mess of flour and dough in the galley…
…cooked them on the galley griddle…
….then made them ready for Captain’s pizza…
…surprising how something so simple…
…can taste so good at anchor…
…our day ended with a 99.6% full moon…
…can’t beat this million dollar view!
