Coba Libre Adventures to Aus
MacNabs Island
06/06/2011, Nova Scotia

We spent two days on Anchor at MacNabs Island its only a couple of miles south of the Yacht Squadron, James and Alan went walking one afternoon on the island they saw lots of Birds, the backside of a Deer and Seals in the distance using the binoculars, damn I should have gone but I was working hard baking cakes and writing a 10 day menu plan for when the guests arrive on Saturday. I made my first ever Corn Chowder which came from the Lovely Barbara a local Nova Scotian lady who was moored up across from us in Harbour on a Yacht called Nelleke ! They have a cook book out which is called Son of a Sea cook and it was the first recipe I have tried is Delish ! I will definately be trying more recipes from the book ! Thanks for running us around as well ! I just can't believe how friendly everyone is in this part of the world people will do anything to help you !! I love it !

BBQ at Leslie's House
06/04/2011, Canada

yes, i say Leslie's house, We met a lovely guy Ale who works at the Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, He invited us over to his girlfriend's house (Leslie) for a BBQ ! We had a lovely night met all the family, it was strange because we had never met his girlfriend either but everyone was and is so friendly. After the BBQ we went out into town, It's a little expensive because you have to pay just to get into the bars then it is about 8 bucks for a beer , James wanted to stay out all night luckily i dragged him back to the boat, oh god i'm sounding old, I don't want to spend my days off work hungover plus i wanted to go shopping !

McLobster is Back !
06/01/2011, Canada

James and I had a day of sightseeing around Hallifax yesterday as we had a day off, We had a lovely lunch down on the pier at the pub and most of the day was trying to hunt around to try and find an IPAD ! After we walked around all day and getting a taxi to a large super centre to find one - but if your a computer geek and have one you will know it is worth it ! We were driving back on the bus when i had a big laugh as there must be an overload of Lobsters Look at the Sign ! "McLobster Burger is Back !"
I need to try one !

Nova Scotia
05/30/2011, Canada

Well I have decided to make time and start writing the blog again, I have been quite slack with it but I have been working hard, Also including a three week trip to see my Nanna and Family in Australia.

I flew back from Sydney to join the boat in Bermuda which was absolutely beautiful, I only had a quick taste for the Island before leaving to sail to Nova Scotia Canada but it was amazing the clearest water i have seen in my life !

We had a 6 day sail with light winds and motoring most of the time, It was quite non-eventful which is good in a way ! We caught a lovely tuna which i cooked three different ways, We had sashimi then i did seared tuna with soba noodle salad and a soy, garlic and ginger sauce it was all yummy and can't wait to catch some more fish..

We are staying at the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron and it is lovely, we had a lovely lobster dinner last night, Nova Scotia is thriving with lobsters and i have been told that i will be sick of it before we leave i doubt that very much, Im posting some pictures from the last few months from Bermuda and Antigua hope you enjoy and start following us again !!
