The Grander Scheme: s/v Northern Symphony

Another simple dream...Another crazy notion: To make a sequel to our Grand Scheme by making an extended great loop starting from our home in Nova Scotia. One boat, two so-called adults, one or two children, and one cat.

Whales! And dolphins! And seals! Oh my!

22 June 2011 | Yarmouth, NS
We have returned to Nova Scotia! After 32 hours underway from our anchorage in Maine, we safely arrived in Yarmouth, NS (with Leslie piping us into the harbor) and cleared customs.

The passage itself was remarkably calm: other than a few 20+ knot gusts during a midnight wind shift, the winds were very, very light and we ended up motoring the entire passage. This made for particularly good nature viewing and we were able to see Minke, Blue, and Humpback whales, three kinds of dolphins, lots of seals, a puffin and masses of more common birds.

Now we're heading for the showers and dinner!
