St Margarets Bay and Lunenburg

July 25th - 29th
We left Halifax on a moderate, beam wind, but the waves were super steep and we only had the jib out, which doesn't steady the boat very much.  The boat was rolling so much that we clipped our tethers on in the cockpit. We usually only do that in the ocean at night.  Anyhow, once we got around the corner and turned downwind, things settled down.  We found a lovely, calm deserted anchorage in Cub Basin at the entrance to St Margaret Bay.

 The next day we motored further in to St Margaret Bay in search of a CCA mooring buoy.  As we went to tie up, the steward, Hans Himmelman, came out in his dinghy to welcome us.  Later we enjoyed one of the nicest evenings of our trip.  Hans and Dani, his lovely wife, invited us to dinner in their beautiful home overlooking the bay.  It was such a treat and made us realize how much we miss dinners like that with friends....

The next day we motored over to Lunenburg, not too far away.
