Meldrum Bay Day 2

14 July 2009
We've decided to stay another day in Meldrum Bay, not that there is anything to do here (note: Presque Isle looks like a major metropolis compared to Meldrum Bay) as an example it has only a half doz transient docks, but on the other hand an excellent Inn with wonderful food. The challenge continues to be weather, especially since we can't run the heaters at anchor.

Tuesday did bring warmer weather although last night was still high 40's. With sun and warm temps it almost feels like early summer. The weather man promised southerly winds and that generally brings warm temps. I will try to upload photos today - not sure how fast the connection is at the Meldrum Inn. If not today then 3 days from now when we get to Gore Bay. FYI for John and Cindy when Vixen gets back she will teach Scruffy a new trick - climbing ALL the way up the companion stairs.
