July 17 – Long Point

We had planned to go to Erie, PA but because the winds were so favorable, we decided to head directly to Long Point. I had to go jogging first (most unpleasant in the heat and humidity even at 6:30 in the morning). We left at about 7:30 and sailed the whole way. It is nice to sail with the wind! The ride is so much more pleasant! It was a long day – we got in at around 7:00 and went swimming right away because it was so hot! The water was very refreshing and even cool.
The only yucky part of the day was just before we turned the corner to the anchorage, we spotted a deer carcass in the water. Most unfortunate, especially since we are right beside a wildlife refuge.

I am glad we came across to Canada today. Tomorrow, we are supposed to get a north east wind, so it would have been right on our bow all day.
No pictures today – nothing new to see.
Tomorrow is Port Colborne and then…the Welland Canal!
