On the way into Mahone Harbour we passed Indian Point where the author of our guide book, “Down East Circle Route”, Capt Cheryl Barr lives.

Oh My Cod

We docked at the town wharf and went off for lunch at Oh My Cod. The chap clearing our plates heard us talking about Navionics (digital chart provider) and asked us where we were from. He replied that he was from Hamilton. I said that we arrived by boat and he said he had too. Apparently, he and his wife had sold up everything and set sail for the Caribbean stopping at Mahone Bay town because of weather. They liked it so much they bought the restaurant! Now that’s a flexible approach to life.

Pretty houses ….

Mahone Bay town is a more bustling place and perhaps even prettier than Chester. Many lovely, well kept homes and certainly more shops.

Crowded cockpit pit but good conversation with lots of hints on sailing this part of the world and the better ports and restaurants to try. After all the snacking and beer we didn’t need dinner!
