The fog must have crept in on little cat’s feet because without any warning a few miles out of the harbor, we were in pea soup! We don’t really like to fly IFR but we didn’t have a lot of choice. So we watched our instruments closely & squinted out into the abyss. We took an easy one foot sea straight on the pointy end of our boat and that part of the ride was easy. Arrived in Meldrum Bay (population 48) around noon, the skies cleared & the sun shone. We visited the three establishments that make up this town, the marina, the Inn & Restaurant, and the General Store/LCBO. I didn’t get any Verizon signal for broadband, so we walked up to the Inn for Wifi. Tomorrow we will head to Drummond Island where we will clear customs and check back into the U.S. “There’s no place like home.” Click. Click. Click. Mary is fixing fresh fish we bought yesterday for supper tonight. I think I’ll grill some asparagus. Canadian Wilderness wifi not strong enough to download pictures today. Will catch up with those later.
Fog has become a factor in our travel. We had to wait until 11AM to leave the dock. We said another goodbye today, this one to Canada. Back to the US of A where Brad will be happy to get 127 channels on the TV & I will have CVS & Walmart where labels are simplified by only using one language. No more converting to ounces, pounds, Fahrenheit & feet. My cell phone will work again! But it is bittersweet to leave such good times behind! I think it is because we are traveling in a way that has made us feel part of the community rather than tourist. Special times!
