Meldrum Bay – Gore Bay – July 16, 17

17 Jul

We had a wild sail from Harbor Island to Meldrum Bay yesterday. The boat was really going fast in the strong wind (not that we would know the speed – sigh…) but we had lots of fun. The end was not great though when we were trying to bring the sails in – lots of lines whipping across the boat. I’d hate to be hit by one of them!

We were forced to go to the dock to speak with the Customs officer – on the phone. That seemed a bit bizarre as we could have just anchored out and rowed the dinghy to the dock. We would have avoided the black black tire mark on the side of the boat but the cabana boy polished that out very quickly once we were safely anchored.

We decided this morning to leave at 7:30 for Gore Bay. The wind was perfect – right behind us the whole way. Waves were six feet but we weren’t pounding into them, so it was fun – kind of like riding a small roller coaster. We sailed the entire way and were safely docked at 1:00.

We went to the laundromat (very necessary) and then did the shopping. I had three trips to the grocery store and filled up on lots of produce plus a case of club soda.

Tomorrow, it is supposed to rain so we are not sure what we are doing. We would like to get to Bridal Veil Falls in Kagawong and Dennis found someone who might drive us. Should be another adventure, I’m sure!
