Little Current – July 12th

12 Jul

Well, we arrived in Little Current for the 9:00 bridge and were safely tied up by 9:15. We did the laundry right away as well as the grocery shopping. Very exciting!

I guess we are officially in the North Channel and hope to go to Hog Island tomorrow, then the Benjamins, Harbour Island and then Gore Bay.

The most exciting thing that has happened is that we may actually be getting a replacement wind instrument! Of course it took a lot of badgering on my part – I emailed Nexus of Sweden, and they have been most cooperative. Supposedly, a replacement will be sent to either Gore Bay or Blind River via Purolator – maybe even today – but I am not holding my breath until I actually see this thing! I am cautiously optimistic though and am hopeful that after three years of arguing with Fogh Marine (and getting nowhere), we will get something.

It is very warm here in Little Current – 27 degrees. Yesterday, we had a big rainstorm come through the anchorage – Heywood Island – and I thought that it would cool off but it hasn’t. We’re nice and cool in the boat though as there is a nice wind blowing through.

That is all the news for today.

    What is a wind instrument? Does it play music like an instrument in an orchestra? Or maybe tell you where the wind is coming from and how fast it is blowing? Aqua joggers, wind instruments, outback ovens – you have a whole different language – landlubbers need translations!
