Great ride to Bayfield
10 August 2012
The night before: I was disappointed that the bagpiper played at the bottom of the lighthouse instead of at the top, regardless, he was very good and an appropriate way to watch the sunset. Maybe Jim S. can arrange the same at CIC?
With the forecast getting crummy, we decided to ‘book it’ out of Kincardine early yesterday, so both boats were on the lake by 7:30. We had following seas and a beam reach all the way to Bayfield. Reaching at 7.8-8 kts. we made it in record time of 5 hours, just in time for the rain to start.
Given the forecast we are going to stay an extra night – also just to step back and relax a bit. Good thing I had reservations, we had docks but boats calling in after us were turned away. Guess everyone was trying to get off the lake.
We tried a new place last night DaVinci’s and had a great meal. Both DaVinci’s and the Black Dog were filled last night – Red Pump was empty, hmmm a statement by the locals? Tonight we have a rez at the Black Dog – but the forecast is rain all day so we’ll have to eat inside :-(.
Almost time to go shopping at our favorite art galleries. Think I’ll leave my wallet on the boat!
