Time to Say Good Bye
20 May 2017
We awoke early this morning to bright sunny skies but freezing temperatures, two days ago it was 34 C in Waterford and this morning it only was 3 degrees. Despite the frigid temperatures we cleared the Whitehall lock by 7:30 and set off on what would be the last day of our fantastic trip. The wind was blowing 20 knots from the north and as we reached the open lake; we debated whether or not to continue motoring into the 2-3 foot waves. Luckily as we moved north the winds abated allowing us to continue and by mid afternoon it was flat calm so we carried on to Mooney Bay. We secured Dagny to her dock at 7:05 and plugged in the central heat as there is a frost warning tonight.
Bev and I have had a fantastic trip, actually it was better than anything we could have hoped for. We saw some amazing sights, explored lots of interesting places along the way and met some wonderful people. During the last month of the northern migration we have said our good-byes to Whitebird, Corret, Our Diamond,
Ti Amo, Heartstrings, Sea Jules and many more. In the last couple of days we bid special good-byes to Paul and Laurie whom we travelled with from the Bahamas all the way to Waterford NY and last night we said good-bye to Anglezarke whom we met way back in Nassau.
Besides saying good-bye it was also time to say good riddence to salt water residue on everything, tides, crab pots and shallow water.
The final good-bye is to everyone who has followed our blog, we've enjoyed your comments and have been surprised by the people we have met along the way that say hey " Dagny" we read your blog. Special good-bye to Ulf in Greenland, I hope we helped shorten your winter.
