7am

Woke up to wisps of mist wrapped around the hilltops. Set off about 9am under sunny skies and little wind.

Difficult getting anchor up probably due to the rocky bottom —- had me worried for a few minutes!

Ramble on 300’ off the cliffs in 400’ of water

Going by the towering cliffs only 300’ away and yet in 400’ of water. Several hamlets along the way in the few spots that weren’t cliffs. About noon we turned into Baie des Ha! Ha! (I kid you not) and the cold winds picked up and we had to really bundle up. We arrived at La Baie at their quite new cruise ship terminal that has places for about 5 boats in behind. Very nice facility meant to handle hundreds of passengers at a time. Happily for us there were no ships there. Nice town combing the old with the new where the new is all to serve cruise ship passengers. Lovely dinner in the cockpit under sunny evening skies.
