Issuma
Rainbow in Newfoundland

Sun Jul 11 10:00:00 EDT 2010, St John's, Newfoundland, Canada

We had a pleasant sail and motor in mostly light winds from St Pierre to St John's, Newfoundland, Canada. St John's has a great harbor, very well protected by the cliffs on either side of the entrance.

Back to France

Gabriela (who used to live in Paris) seems happy to be back in France. The rocks ahead of Issuma are in the entrance to St Pierre, a small island just south of Newfoundland that is a French territory.

After sailing in thick fog all night, as we made our approach to St Pierre, the fog lifted as the sun rose.

Sailing from Halifax has looked like this a lot...fog, sometimes rain, sometimes wind, occasionally clearing.

Louisbourg

Wed Jun 30 9:00:00 EDT 2010, Louisbourg, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada

Issuma at the dock in historic Louisbourg, on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. In the background, totally obscured by our frequent companion Fog, is Louisbourg.

Louisbourg was an unplanned stop. The satellite phone (which is used for email) stopped working while offshore because the airtime minutes expired (they quietly expire after a year). I was chasing some parts for the weatherfax receiver and needed email, so we stopped in Louisbourg to use a payphone and internet.
