First of all, the boat is having problems. The starboard engine is over heating so we are running on the port engine only. No, we are not going round in circles!!! Also, the loos have problems, both of them. We are unable to use the toilets so I will leave it to your imagination what we have to do during the day and hence the marina last night.
We have seen some lovely sites in the past week and met two very nice couples, Susan and Brent and Larry and Gail. We spent two nights with them playing Skip-Bo and a game that Brent showed us how to play. The games were accompanied by wine and snacks and lots of laughs.
We are still in Georgian Bay at a little town called Kagagong on Manatoulin Island. They had live music at the marina last night so we were serenaded with "House of the Rising Sun" etc.. The group was very good.
To get to Kagagong we have travelled through some lovely areas accompanied by really calm waters. The area is part of the Canadian Shield, also called the Laurentian Plateau. The area covers 2/3 of Canada and into the United States and is made up of mostly granite. Because the area is mostly granite the soil is poor and thin and cannot support trees with deep root systems. We have seen several trees toppled over by high winds exposing a very shallow root system.
We ate at Henry's, a famous fish and chip restaurant on Frying Pan Island (yes, that really is the name of the island). Gary had fresh lake perch, I had haddock and chips. Both were very nice.
We came across a couple of signs that made us smile.
A blog would not be complete without reflection and sunset photos, now would it?
