windy - 35-40kph winds...sunshine
More beaches and a lovely visit with Bill and Leslie, the owners of the beach (and internet service which is delivering this blog update).
A very impressive off-the grid complete living environment with fresh rain water collected in cisterns, extensive gardens, hydroponics driven by solar panel powered water pumps, chickens, bees, wonderful fruits and vegetables, high speed internet, a full equipped wood working shop, tractors, backhoe, ancient single cylinder diesel generator, boats, canoes, white sand beaches...........and on,and on.
We hoping to get them to visit our home and/or the cottage when they travel through Ottawa later this spring!
Everyone should make an effort to come down here and experience the cleanliness, solitude, and unspoiled beauty of the place.
The marina confirmed our haulout date of April 3rd, so we better make hay while the sun is shining!
All the best!
