Oops! Aground at N 46 deg. 05.225 min. W 81 deg. 44.227 min. But this is in the middle of a channel charted at 2-5 meters LWD, the one leading SW out of the harbor. Was able to spin the boat atop this rock using the engine, but that did not free us. Had to dinghy out the anchor and kedge off using the powerful genoa winch on the mast.
Exiting Haystack towards the Small Craft Route. Very tight squeeze through here.
What a small world! Norm & Elaine live here in the nicer of the two cottages (five months, then to AZ). Both are retired schoolteachers, her teaching in North Chicago, IL (the small town where both Happy & Owen spent their science careers with Abbott Labs). Even more unlikely, she has a 2nd cousin who was a pharmacist in Wichita Falls, TX (Owen’s home town!) The odds?
Crossing Lake Huron in the fog. Lots of big ships all about. We can’t see them until they are ~1/4 mile away! Not at all comforting! Somewhat keeping track of them using the Boatfinder app. but they don’t all appear there.
