Rest at Shediac

We crossed Northumberland Straight yesterday to enter the Pointe du Chene Yacht Club basin, a private yacht club among the friendliest we've come to. No one met us at the dock with beers like Shippagan, but almost as good. Yesterday some of us walked the incredible beaches here and swam the warm ocean water. Lots of people are here, a very busy spot. There's this huge dock thingy (a nautical term) with big Coast Guard and RCMP boats, seafood places, like I imagine Cape Cod to be. We finally have a serious boat failure issue, my reading light seems to have burned out for good. But we are roughing it, and I'm getting by with my headlamp. We like it at this marina, after walking three miles to check out the Shediac Marina. Big party here tonight and we are parked right next to the clubhouse. But we are roughing it. Capt. Jeff

  1. Good move making the crossing yesterday. Today looked pretty nasty and we hung tight in Pictou for the day.
