This is a very beautiful harbour surrounded by high treed hills. There’s obviously a lot of money here. Hinckley Yachts are built here and there are many of them here. A 35’ beside Ramble On is a ‘picnic’ boat so really a day boat runabout. New this boat (pictured below) would cost about a million USD!

The town was pretty but high end and generally folks here aren’t that friendly or maybe we just got used to the friendliest of Nova Scotians.

The small ferry that serves the small islands comes into the dock beside us. When we are arrived we saw a UPS truck dropping off many boxes. When the ferry arrived they placed al the boxes on the roof before taking on their passengers. A very well used service.

There are very frequent shuttle buses here that are free and sponsored by LL Bean – great service and keeps a lot of cars off the road. It took us about 2 hours to take 2 different shuttles to the airport for Debbie to pick up her car (she’s driving home to Canada) and pick up Chris McDonnell who was flying in from NYC to crew on Finnish Line.
