Day 79 Schooner Cove St Margaret’s Bay NS 31 nm today 1685 nm to date

An easy out mid-morning. Had a 38’ US boat, Monarch, running parallel to our port side decide to head into a bay to our starboard. Rather than delay a minute he rushed by our bow causing some concern on our boat. When visiting other countries it’s better to remember one is an ambassador of one’s own country.

We passed within 500’ of Peggy’s Cove at mid-day. Lots of tourists milling around the lighthouse rocks. Then it was jib up and a pleasant run into the head of St Margaret’s Bay. There was no room at Shinning Waters Marine so we continued around the corner and anchored in a nicely sheltered cove. No fishing boats here but plenty of expensive homes and boats!
