High Seas

July 3rd, 2008 by Walt "The Skipper" Jones

We left Randy, Jenny & Quinlan in Halifax. They rented a car and are headed to PEI and will rendezvous with us at the Bras d’Or Lake in a couple of days. It’s a good thing too, as today was no picnic. Seas were about 10′ abeam and it was quite breezy.

We didn’t leave the Armdale Yacht Club until 2:00 pm after fueling because we found a leak in the Defrost system and fixed it there. Wouldn’t you know that it was the “impossible to get to” spot but eventually with the right tool all was well. The people at this club were so nice and gracious; we’d recommend a visit to anyone in the area.

We set the anchor behind Malagash Island which reminds us of S.E. Alaska with all the rocks and evergreens right to the waterline — very pretty. The anchorage is quiet and we are the only ones here. Tomorrow should be a more pleasant run with calmer conditions predicted. Kip, as usual is putting on the spread for dinner; curry and some good smelling bread!
