"What a great place to celebrate with my captain / repair man"

The wind came up briefly off Cape George, but never enough for us to shut the motor off. Unfortunately we were fighting the tides most of day and it was extremely hot, since what little wind there was, was on on our stern. Jude and I had a quick swim in the Straight to cool off. Never hit the bottom in 135 feet of water!

We motored the rest of the way and made Caribou just as the Confederation was leaving. There was also a flotilla of fishing boats filled with people. One of the boats was also towing a rubber tube with a couple of kids on it, which got on the wrong side of a red marker on way back in the channel.

A VERY long day. There has to be a better way to make this trip.
