Day 72 Shelter Cove NS 24 nm today 1577 nm to date

Foggy, foggy day. We could not see the island behind us 1/10 of a mile away so decided to wait for it to clear. This occurred about 11:30 so by noon we were off in wonderful sunshine. Except it didn’t last. The fog returned and was very thick. Although the two boats maintained a position of about 400’ of separation they often could not see each other. Most of the 22nm route was wending our way around small islands and shoals. Thank goodness for radar and AIS!! Worst part was having to wipe the mist off my glasses every 45-60 seconds to be able to see the chart plotter …. most annoying.

The last vestiges of fog as we set off. Or so we thought.

Shelter Cove has an inner spot but according to the charts the entrance was only 3’ and we draw 4.5’. But it was almost high tide so Finnish Line 2.0 slowly entered but never saw less than 27’ in the entrance. Could make out another anchored boat tucked in at the top of the cove but soon it was lost in the fog. We anchored in 22’ and enjoyed watching a seal play with its dinner.
