Today about noon (weather permitting) we will leave for the Magdelen Islands (English spelling). It is a 25 hour trip (125 miles). We plan to spend a day there before sailing the 60 miles to Cheticamp, Cape Breton Island – our destination!!!
We left at 11:45 AM in beautiful weather. It was sunny and warm with only a few clouds. It did get a bit “lumpy” later in the afternoon but it settled down and became a beautiful evening and night with almost a full moon and lots of stars. We arrived to this beautiful and charming island in the middle of the Gulf about noon in perfect weather. It seemed the whole island was celebrating the exceptionally warm and sunny day they were having. We went for lunch and showers and then exploring. Tomorrow we will leave early for Cheticamp (10 hours).
