Farthest East, ever!
Today we went farther east than we've ever gone in Adirondack, a longitude of W60 degrees 32 minutes, waay farther east than we ever went in the Bahamas. Tomorrow we will head back west and south, probably never this way again. We are anchored in a place called Oyster Cove up in East Bay of the Bras d'Or, the salt/freshwater lake that people around here rave about for sailing. It's pretty nice with warm water and cute little towns with lots of history about the Scots who migrated here from, guess where, Scotland! Today we hiked to Iona, where there is a place called Heritage Village, a simulated town depicting that event. It was really interesting, and quite the hike. We are starting to watch the weather window for a crossing to the coast of Nova Scotia. Wes is already concerned. Capt. Jeff
