DAY TWO: Leaving Montreal
Another beautiful day.
Clear skies and fabulous south-east winds
as we said goodbye to Montreal.
There was very little traffic on the water.
Just one BFB….
…look at the force as it pushes through the water.
…and the force of its wake.
Next time we must remember to close the forward hatch.
And finally after another glorious 35.8 nm
we anchored for the night…
at Île aux Cochons
(Island of the Pigs)
Where the bull frogs and marsh birds lulled us to sleep,
…but not before we comsumed a healthy dose of vitamin C.
We aren’t concerned about getting enough vitamin D,
but a sailor always has to be concerned about scurvy
so we added a large wedge of lime to our evening rum…
