Small world… continued

27 July 2009 | Bayfield
Blue skies, moderate wind and waves led to one our more delightful sails on this trip. Unfortunately it was the shortest leg - only 2 hours. Once we got out of the sloppiness in the channel, we were able to raise both sails and off we went . Bayfield, albeit small, is one our favorite towns in Canada. The 'downtown' is only about three blocks long but filled with quaint shops and galleries.

As we walked down the docks to head into town, I spotted a familiar looking Beneteau - as I thought, it was our 345 (pictured above) that we sold 12 years ago to Bob and Carol from Royal Oak, Mi. and of course we got a chance to catch up with them - it was nice to hear that they still love the boat. It was one of our favorites - especially since we have many fond memories of family vacations on it. Also next to us at the dock is a powerboat and as we got to talking to them, turns out they are good friends of Jake and Emily (Kerm and Lynne we'll get their names for you). Small world indeed!

Tonight we're hosting cocktails (wine and wonderful appetizers) then off to the Red Pump, one of the nicest restaurants on Lake Huron.
