Back to Bluenose Country
06 August 2008 | Yarmouth, NS, Canada
Beth - with blue nose & cold toes
We made it!
We left Frenchboro on Tuesday night just before 8pm, sailing through the lobster pots in the rosy light of the setting sun. A couple of boat crews waved us off as we set off to "go home".
With all our planning for not too much wind, we ended up not having ANY. The motor roared the whole way for 104.2 nautical miles, and the wind picked up just as we entered the harbour. The Gulf of Maine was empty too - just a couple of sightings of far off fishing boats, a pass-by of the fast ferry this morning. We met it again in the long entrance to Yarmouth harbour.
It feels strange to be back in Canada - back home - yes - but also much closer to the end of this wonderful trip.
We'll stay in Yarmouth for a few days visiting friends and then will make our way up the south shore of NS as we enter this next stage of the journey.
