It was a lovely trip up to Killarney on Wednesday. Our original plan was to stay in the Parry Sound/Pointe Au Baril area for a few more days but, given that we had perfect weather, we decided to make a run for it. Lucky we did because today is overcast with off-and-on rain.
We motored for at least half of the eleven-hour trek as there was very little wind, but in the afternoon it picked up and we had a lovely sail; the bay was absolutely flat. It's not very often we see that! We pulled into Killarney around 6:00 just in time for Fish n Chips. Anyone who has been to Killarney knows how we couldn't pass up that!
Stuffed to the gills, we waddled back to Blue Blazes and motored her over to Covered Portage Cove where we dropped the anchor. I can't believe I'm saying this after just returning from the Bahamas, but this is one of my favorite places. We are now in the La Cloche Mountain Range. The scenery is breathtaking with the windswept pines set against the white quartz mountains and tall cliffs right up to the water's edge. (Big breath) Life just doesn't get much better.
