Modaki has left Owen Sound port ... June 26, 2012

This is the picture of the new drawers that Joe built ... and they are full !

We opened a bottle of sparkling wine and offered some to the seas and to our friends .... a great way to start the morning ... 6:30 am

Joe and myself .... a great way to start the morning !!!

Joe's mom, Harriet Parker, Syl McIntosh and Paul Beattie  shared the bubbly and
saw us off the dock.

Looking back at the Georgian Yacht Club and the Owen Sound Harbour.
Joe and I will be back in 4 months ... but Modaki will not come back for
5 years ... as we are leaving her this year in the Maritimes  ...
and next year  ....... ???

Clay banks at Meaford Tank Range

Christian Island Lighthouse

photo taken on the chart plotter of our motoring track from Owen Sound
to Christian Island .... there was no wind .... but the seas where quite lumpy
it took us 7 hours

We got to sail from Christian Island ... on a north wind ... all the way to Penetang
The wind was quite gusty at times ...  we had no problem will full sails
I guess it is because we are so heavy loaded ... all the sail boats we met had reef in.

Okay I won't bore you too many times with meal pictures ... BUT...
We want to thank Sue Allison for the fine wine and the scapes and lettuce
from her garden.  My sister Louise and Mike Pepe for the
elk steaks, they also gave us elk sausage which we ate for
breakfast this morning

Discovery Harbour - Magazine Island
Historic Site   across from our anchorage

Chart plotter track from Penetang to Victoria Harbour
another motor trip .... no wind

Getting the main sail down ... it has taken us 6 hours so far to get sails
off, MOB removed, lines off, dodger and bimini off, boom removed ... and
so on and so on ..... and Joe is still making the cradle for the mast.
We where going to take it down today but we where going to be rushed to
meet the 3:30 deadline
So we went to town and bought a few groceries and some liquids, the library gives free internet and Joe did his banking.   We had an ice cream cone too.

Queen's Cove Marina is quite nice, we got to fold both sails
on the covered dock ... so far we are quite pleased with the facilities

Can you find us in the picture ????
