Arrived at the marina at 0710 on departure day. Not a very nice day. Overcast and dreary to begin with. My father, Vince LaBute, Linda and Jim Cecile, my sister and brother-in-law were there to wish us a safe trip. Michelle was there to say good-bye to Chris. Steve and Judy had stayed on their boat overnight and were there for the send off. Ken showed up to give a weather report and some final pointers. Leslie was there too!
We cast off and were out of the harbour and headed down river by 0728. Our destination for today…Scudder, Pelee Island. Likely to be our last Canadian port for a very long time.
