On the move

We are on the move. Sort of. We have had one great sailing day and other partial wind days interspersed with too much motoring. Tonight we are sitting in Bear Drop Harbor, a large pool of water, entered through a very narrow winding entry. The pool is somewhat shallow, beautiful water surrounded by large hills of pink rocks topped with green pine trees. Quiet, peaceful and stunning.
However, Waldo has a question for Connie and Bill. We had met Connie and Bill when we first arrived in Newfoundland and spent several days in the fog with them. Then they returned to Nova Scotia and we continued along the south shore of Newfoundland. They reappeared as we launched our boat 2 weeks ago. We reconnected, but again we have taken separate paths. Before they departed to go south in the Mississippi, they gave us two suggestions for their favorite anchorages in the North Channel. Waldo loved Whitney Bay but when we arrived at Pilot Cove, Waldo wonders why they “wanted” to destroy his keel. Connie, it was beautiful, but you and Bill must have A: gone in during a very high water year, B: entered in a kayak, C: someone has filled up the very narrow entry with lots of rocks since you were there. Four feet of water was a bit dicey. Fortunately, it was a calm evening and we just threw down an anchor in the lake and Waldo forgave you.
So, now we are a few days away from Killarney Lodge at the east end of the North Channel where for a $25.00 mooring ball, we will luxuriate at the Lodge for a few days.
