We left Quebec City at 6:00 am. We had spent part of the day before getting things put away and all secured. The boat is staying in the water until the Cirque du Soleil packs up, then it will get hauled out, placed in the Cirque parking lot and winterized by Global Marine. Dennis will be going back to the boat in June to get it ready for next year.
Our trip home was uneventful. We only made one mistake in Montreal (my fault) but we did manage to miss the construction so maybe it was a good thing. Nick drove the first three hours, then Dennis drove for a couple of hours. We stopped for a quick lunch at Lake of Bays at the Subway. Nick asked if I wanted to split a six inch meatball sub, so I agreed. When we got it, I broke it into two pieces and he kind of wondered what happened. He said it must have been a miscommunication – I guess he wanted to split a twelve inch sub! Oh well, we didn’t need to eat much anyway.
I drove after lunch for a couple of hours and then when we stopped for gas in Huntsville, Nick took over and got us home. So, the trip took 10 and a half hours. We were home by 4:30 – a little stunned, but happy to be home.
Here is a picture of our sailing route.
It was a great trip! Lots of fun and adventure! I think my favourite place was Montreal although almost everywhere we went was good. The weather cooperated – it hardly rained. It was very hot for most of the summer but since we stayed at a lot of marinas, we were able to use the air-conditioning often which offered some respite.
Anyway, that is all I have to say! Thanks for reading and commenting. Stay tuned for more adventures!
