I'm sorry if my delays in postings are confusing everyone. We spent the month of August at home in Nova Scotia, but we're back on board now. I won't subject you to a lengthy description of everything we did during our "summer vacation". I'll just say that we were lucky to arrive at a time when the weather was almost perfect, and it goes without saying that the best part was spending time with our family and friends. I've posted some photos in the gallery (click this link
) but for those of you who have never been lucky enough to visit Nova Scotia, here is a small sampling of what you might see if you came for a visit.
When we cruised in Nova Scotia, we did most of our summer sailing in the waters of Mahone Bay, St. Margaret's Bay and the Bras d'Or Lakes. In our more ambitious years, we sailed to Maine, Newfoundland and St. Pierre and Miquelon (and in doing so went to France without having to sail "across the pond"). The more popular anchorages might have to be shared with a few other boats, but often we'd be completely alone. Watching the boats sail past from Rick's parents old summer home on the shore of St. Margaret's Bay, we felt more than a bit envious. And we wondered whether maybe, just maybe, it is time to bring Aisling home.
