05 July 2010 | nice day on the water
Rik / sunny and calm
Saint Andrews, NB to Eastport ME to Cuttler ME.
A nice pleasant day. We fought the current in the Grand Manan channel (the current won) but we got here about 1640. Asked some nice guys on a lobster boat and they told us to pick up a certain mooring - the guy was out for a few days. We really like Cuttler. Se we up the NanoStation2 and we now have wifi for both of us. Sweet
Captain Hook tried to jump ship in Eastport. We went into Eastport to clear into the USA and to pick up our cruising permit. Coming into the dock, he was up on the bow like a shot, trying to figure out how close he needed to be to jump to the dock. The little turkey, and after all we do for him!
We put him in the brig and only let him off his leash on the way out of Eastport.
Saw some dolphins, but no whales. It was warm and sunny for most of the trip. We were headed almost due SW and of course, the wind was totally out of the SW. Fought the current and the wind.
Now time to make some supper.
Hope for NE Harbour on Mount Desert Island tomorrow.
Rik, Linda and Captain Hook
