The Grander Scheme: s/v Northern Symphony

Another simple dream...Another crazy notion: To make a sequel to our Grand Scheme by making an extended great loop starting from our home in Nova Scotia. One boat, two so-called adults, one or two children, and one cat.

A Quick Update

04 July 2011 | Yarmouth, NS
Happy 4th of July to those of you in the USA!

You may be wondering what has happened to us: We are still in Yarmouth! We spent the first couple of days here driving a rental car to our home and resurrecting our vehicles. Fortunately we have three drivers, so Evelyn and I each drove a car back to Yarmouth (where we returned the rental) and Colin spent another night in the motel and then drove to the Halifax airport for a trip to Wales.

While he was away, we three drove back to the Valley and spent a couple of nights visiting friends. Leslie had a great time dropping in for the last day of school at Evangeline Middle School. She even got to go to the Grade 8 Graduation as a spectator with her friend's mother.

Now Colin is back, but the weather is not particularly nice for sailing around to the south shore (two meter waves, gusty wind, fog, and precipitation), so we are hanging out for a while longer.
