Day 56 Ballantyne Cove NS 38 nm today 1265 nm to date

Off the dock just before eight. Once out of the river it became a bumpy ride. Winds good enough to sail but after less than an hour they diminished and turned on our nose. At St George’s Bay the winds came up along with some rather large swells. Lots of banging as the hull dropped over waves and a fair bit of water coming over the deck including the coach roof. Arrived at the very small fishing harbour of Ballantyne’s Cove mid afternoon. Tied up at a dock and went to help Ramble On come in just as a huge rain storm hit. Storm was apparently local but brought lots of water which washed down the hillside giving the harbour very brown water. Very limited services and washrooms are a very long walk but then it’s only $1 a foot.
