Well, we made it to Whitby Harbour. We ran fast for a while to give the Turbos a good clear out. Until it became foggy at least… and Wow did it get Foggy! We ended up using radar most of way. Continue reading “Home Sweet Home. For the winter anyway.”
After leaving Hastings we enjoyed some of my favourite parts of the trip. I especially enjoyed the Healy Falls Flight lock. You enter 1 lock, go down.

We have spent the past two weekends here on Georgian Bay getting to know the boat and her systems. It is BEAUTIFUL in this area! I can’t believe I have never spent time here when we live so close. But… close is not close enough. The 2 hour drive is too much to get to the boat so we have decided to move down the Trent Severn and take a slip at Crates Marine in Lagoon City.
