You could not have asked for much more of a perfect day. The
sun was shining the winds were light and the lake had warmed up a bit. We got
out of the bay and made a run to Bronte Outer Harbour to top up the fuel tanks.
Who knows how long Harbour west will be off line due to flooding?
We anchor off Bronte Beach for lunch and got everyone home
safely by dinner time.
The skies opened an dumped a major deluge before dawn, by 09:00 it had stopped. We checked the radar and found the weather had cleared, so we went for it. At 10:30 we cast off from slip 306 and bee lined for the pump out, we were literally full of shit. Our next stop was to the Harbour West Gas Dock. It was under water and the diesel fuel tank was flooded. We toured the bay. The water levels were at the same levels at 2017.
The weather was not too bad. The water was cool but the sun was out. We took the Dark Side over to Harbour West and filled the fresh water holding tank. Then we toured the bay for a bit and anchored at Carols Point. Everyone had a good time.
There was a high wind warning in effect and it was drizzling
rain. The white caps on the bay and the wobbly deck motivated us stay tied to
the slip and enjoy the company right where we were. The blankets came out for
an added coziness.
The day started out bright and sunny. It was only 7C on the
water so we were dress warm, but inside the enclosure it was very cozy. We
stopped at the fuel dock only to find they had not yet open. We had lots of
fuel so we headed over to La Salle Park Marina (LSPM). It was bit of a harry
landing in our new slip (306), but we settled in fine. It was nice to see some familiar
faces. Murry and Ted both check in.
The marina has just opened. They do not have water or power
to the slips yet. It is bit like camping.
