Fresh Raspberries in Pringle's Harbour

Sail #26: 15/08/12 - 22.2 nm

Sittin' in Pringle's Harbour and the Captain is on dinner detail, cooking up scallops on the BBQ.  Still covered in seaweed on us from the walk on Pringle's Island - a short (maybe a little long) row from our anchorage in the harbour.

Met a "local" sailor on the way in to Pringle's.  His C&C 30 guided us to good site to anchor and then he returned with freshly picked raspberries from his garden!  On Ontarian who learned Cape Breton hospitality!  "Kent" was a retired faculty member from the StFX business school and has been living in CB for years.

Great day on West Bay.  Sailed from Little Harbour to Dundee to check our Prospector's new home.  Had a walk and a look around.  We saw Boudreau's boat at the wharf across the cove.  We were very impressed with Kim and Andy's new property.  Lots of potential and we're sure it'll be spectacular!

We left Dundee for the Crammond Islands but the wind was blowing through the middle of the islands so we decided to spend the night in Pringle's Cove.  It turned out to be a great decision since we met Kent, who would become an invaluable resource to us.

Good spot for the night.
