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.
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.
