Quiet night at anchor. Our 5 wind apps couldn’t agree on strength, gusts, and direction. With a potential rain storm coming we had lots of discussion on when to leave finally taking off 10ish. Not a great day as although there was not much wind the seas were lumpy and we had some drizzling rain. Arrived about one and filled up with diesel. After a late lunch on Ramble On Chris and I went shopping leaving the women onboard. Nothing wrong with this picture when you know we went to a marine store and Canadian Tire. About a 20 minute walk through some interesting back streets. Very good dinner at the marina restaurant. Popular place and understandable as the food and service were very good.

Avoid this boat. Skipper tends to hit things

A fishing boat hit our dinghy on the way out this morning. No damage I believe …. but he lingered about and yelled at me in French. I made a big show of taking pictures of his boat. Mentioned it to the marina admin. They said he had hit another boat, too. When I said he was a terrible driver they said, it’s a fisherman they drive like truck drivers.

Today will be a provisioning day and we will visit the Lighthouse Museum which also has artifacts from the sinking of the Canadian Pacific Empress of Ireland in May 1914 just a few kilometres from here. Over 1,000 lives were lost. It was a collision in fog. Both captains survived.
