Sunday, July 17th
The winds were calm so we decided to leave early and make a 57-mile run for George’s Bay. This avoided a lot of ports with less than stellar reviews, and put us in a good position to have some easier days ahead.
It was an uneventful day. Not much too see except the red cliffs as we passed land.
We’re at Ballantyne’s Cove, a man-made harbor just around the tip of Cape George. For the first time this trip, there was no space on the floating docks so we’re tied up to the wall like a fishing boat.
Although lobster season is over for now, we noticed that some fishermen here use the bowed wooden traps that were common decades ago in New England
We’re hoping tomorrow will be a shorter trip. And a longer post.
