Portland Oregon

We finally dipped our toes into the Pacific. We went to the left coast to visit Kelly and Eric, and managed to get out there in perfect weather. Well, not completely perfect, but pretty nice. It was great seeing Kelly and Eric, and having her walk us around Portland, Astoria, Cannon Beach, and Mount Multnomah. Our feet are still recovering. Portland is an interesting town. Very green in many ways, and I really like the free public transportation. Something every city should have. It was nice to see a thriving downtown, unlike Rochester. It was a great trip, and it's good to know the kids are alright.

More of the August cruise

Prinyer Cove, Ontario Canada We anchored in Prinyer cove, on the north side of a peninsula, just west of Amherst Island. View Larger Map After we were firmly anchored to the earth, some folks in another Morgan stopped by in their kayaks to say hello. They looked at our boat some years ago. Interesting how sailors all seem to be connected somehow, usually through friends, or boats. They are on their way to Sodus Bay, but are waiting for wind. We have to be back by Sunday, so no wind means motor boating all the way back. What a sleepy little anchorage on a beautiful sunny morning. I made a nice pasta dish last night, but my stomach has not been the same since. Maybe as work gets closer, my stomach gets worse. Today it's off to Belleville, or Waupoos. If they can fit us in at Belleville, then it's off to the west, otherwise it's southwest. OK, Deb says we're not going to Waupoos. Westward Ho!

From the August cruise

Still in Gananoque.
We exchanged names and blogs with Janice and Bob on Tsamaya. I was invited to look inside at this beauty, but declined, as I smelled like a bear. I have to learn to be more sociable, or get better at taking early showers.

We took the bikes for a ride in the morning, and followed the river for a few miles and back. We went down to the waterfront for a smoothy, and watched all the landlubbers walking around. What is it with guys wearing Capri pants up here? Unless you're dressing up as a pirate, you should leave these for the ladies to wear. The weather was spectacular today, and should be for the rest of the week. We spotted Bill from Avatar, and he's here with Nautilus for showers and shopping.

We're going to lazy around the boat today, then head out for dinner. Tomorrow it's Prinyer cove, then either Belleville, or home.
