The downward stretch

Sitting in Kincardine today - we came to the sad realization that our trip is almost over. The only thing left in this harbor is a potluck dinner on our boat tonight while we listen to the bagpiper at the lighthouse piping the sun down.

Then it's on to Bayfield - a special place for us - yes, Michael, we did already reserve docks at the Bluewater Marina for 14' wide sailboats ;-). Everything after that - Sarnia then probably Windsor is just a stop on the way home.

We have had a fabulous time with our friends Paul and Geri on 'Richard Sharpe'. And at lunch at Bruce's in town, we did decide on next year's trip - Lake Ontario (Eva and Michael are you game for that trip?). There will be lots of planning for that one including preparation for the Welland Canal to Lake Ontario.

Weather today? Light from the Northwest with rollers left over from last night - forecast was 10 N/NE - let's not go there, we're done with weather predictions!

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. [...]
