"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Kagawong, Little Current and Gore Bay, Ont.

Since Friday's post we have visited Little Current on the North Channel in Ontario, from there we went went a bit further west to Kagawong, Ontario. There is a waterfall called "Bridal veil falls" very pretty, but not nearly as large as our own Brandywine falls or Chagrin falls. After the falls, we went on to the "chocolate store" where of course I picked up a few bites for later. There is a very small church that we went to, the pulpit is an actual front of an old wood boat, with many nautical items throughout the church, see the pictures.

The marina had a pot luck dinner which we attended, great food and very friendly people. We also met our first group of fellow loopers. There were two other boats that came in, one is "Biddy & the Beast", that's Dan & Biddy's boat, they are from Kentucky and almost done with their trip. The other boat is "Franklyterryific" which is Frank & Terry's boat, they are from RI. We had drinks on Dans & Biddy's boat after the pot luck.

We headed out on Sunday for an anchorage at Croker Island, another uninhabited island, that has cove's for anchoring out. Spent the night there, had a T'storm during the night, so the waves rocked the boat, and us to sleep. Today which is Monday we went south west to "Gore Bay" and will be spending tonight and tomorrow night at this marina. Tomorrow is laundry again, and we will check out the town, it is very small. We went to dinner tonight at one of the two restaurants in town and everything was already closed at 6:00.
