I was right, today was a great picture day!! We went to Peggy’s Cove on a road through some pretty fishing villages. We then drove around Margarets Bay and Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. The pictures speak for themselves.
I was amazed at how beautiful a day it was only hours after Hurricane Earl blew through here. The sun was shining so we went downtown to the waterfront. They were having a festival with music and costumed performers. Some … Continue reading

The weather was better today – a wind at our back instead of in our faces. We sailed for a while but eventually fired up the engine to get to Matane before dark. We were hungry and tried so we … Continue reading
It was a beautiful calm sunny morning as we left the marina for Rimouski on the south shore. We timed our departure to take advantage of the tide as it was going out which helped us move down and across … Continue reading
It was a calm night and the huge cliffs in the bay were like a geo-thermal furnace so it was a very nice night and morning. We took our time enjoying the beauty and a great breakfast. We sailed most … Continue reading
