August 3rd – Charlottetown

03 Aug

We had quite a rainstorm last night apparently. Dennis woke up from the pounding of the rain but I didn’t so I can only take his word for it. 🙂
We left the ferry dock this morning at around 7:30 and made our way to Charlottetown. The wind was up quite a bit for a couple of hours so it was a bit rough until we pulled out the sails and then the wind died out (of course!).
We arrived at the Charlottetown Yacht Club but didn’t really like our accommodations. The dock was made of cement and there were very few cleats to tie to, plus the giant yacht (Magic Days) had monopolized most of the available power. So we walked over to the next marina and asked if they had some room. They did and we moved the boat over to it.

Charlottetown is quite pretty. Lots of old historical buildings – it is the birthplace of Confederation, after all, it should be interesting to explore.

Dennis met up with Sir John A.

We made it back to the boat just in time for a sudden rainstorm to come through – winds were up to 37 knots so I am glad we are at the marina.

There was an interesting boat sailing by before the storm.

That is all the news for now. The storm has passed so I think it is time for supper.
We are off to Pugwash next – probably on Monday or Tuesday.
