Groundhog Day Sarnia

21 July 2012 | Sarnia, Ontario
As predicted it’s another day as we wait out the weather. The sun came up after a dreary 18 hrs of rain and fog. But today the winds piped up to 17+ out of the North/Northwest which means a pretty uncomfortable go for a run to Harbor Beach. Forecast for next three days is pretty light and mostly out of the south so it should be a nice ride to Harbor Beach and then the following day to Harrisville.

Last night drinks and appetizers again with a fabulous Cabernet from our cellar; Regusci (Stags Leap) 2002 – sorry Alex and Michael! Dinner at Paddy Flaherty’s and this morning a nice surprise – Blueberry pancakes and eggs on Richard Sharpe.

Got a little maintenance done: tightened the steering cables, topped off the air in the dingy, housekeeping in the cabin, etc. and then onto a fabulous Italian restaurant called Salvatore’s in Port Edward. Louie, the owner came to table to describe the dinner (no menu – just what he decides) which came family style. I noticed everyone else had ‘doggy bags’ but us. FYI the homemade Tiramisu here is fabulous. Having a great time and eating well.

We started sailing 27 years ago on a 17' boat in Chicago. Once we found out small boats and big lakes don't mix we quickly upgraded to a 30' then progressed through 34, 38 and our most recent acquisition is a 42. [...]
