While we were sitting on the ama drinking our coffee, Bill saw an otter playing along the shore. We watched it for quite some time--what's the hurry after all? We pulled up the anchor around 10 AM and headed back out the Bale Fine channel to the open water of Georgian Bay.
Once we got sails in place we made great time across the bay, sailing past the Little Current lighthouse and all the way up to the bridge. There were 2 other sailboats waiting with us for the 2 PM bridge opening and we did not have long to wait! We pumped out the head, got a dock and walked over to get an ice cream cone. What a great day! We plan sailing trips hoping for days like this--you can't predict the wind!
