Heading Back Out

22 July 2013 | Gore Bay
So after our overnight at the dock in Gore Bay everything is charged, emails read, and all the other land based stuff that needs to get done, groceries, pump out, a dinner out, first of the trip, and now it's time to go sailing again.

Several nights back, we stopped in a beautiful harbor on Fox Island thought we might be alone but not to be. Six other boats spent the and yes most weather related fun happens at night. Thunder storms, close to 30 mile an hour winds and horizontal rain. Enough wind to push one boat onto the shore, not a serious situation, no waves just tons of rain and very high winds. I considered jumping in the dinghy and trying to help pull them off but my better judge prevailed figuring I could make things worse with all the lines they had in the water. Wind quit about 02:00 and they were successful pulling their boat off the rock ledge. When we got up I saw they were still having trouble anchoring so off I went to offer assistance. When I saw their anchor I figured the best thing for them was to take off and go back to their dock in McBean Harbor. Really, their anchor was smaller than the lunch-hook I use for Our Dinghy. Seriously, people need be more attentive to their equipment, fortunately this time no one was hurt. They did decide to leave and all returned to calm in the harbor.

We've been told that the Benjamin Islands are a must see so off we went the next morning. No big deal that day less than a 5 mile trip.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
