August 11, 2013 Day 81   Northumberland Strait
Silver Fox Yacht and Curling Club
Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada

We had hoped to depart today, but at 6:30 this morning when we saw the flags flying straight out, we knew we were not going anywhere. The winds did not die down until late afternoon. We caught up on a few boat chores and visited with lots of other boaters (also stuck here).

Lisa and Joyce went to the mall (thanks to Richard and Shannon for dropping us off) and got haircuts!! This is always an issue when traveling, so after being long overdue for a haircut, Joyce is finally happy. It is just not always possible to find a place, or have transportation, or time.  We had a leisurely walk back to the marina.  We discovered a beautiful home for sale and when we researched it later, discovered it was built in 1890 and is now a bed and breakfast.  We are constantly finding homes with beautiful, well-tended flower gardens.

We had dinner on board and talked with Ron and Lisa on Outbound about plans for tomorrow.  The decision is to leave early and go as far as we can.  So we will see where we land!  We may not have wifi for sure.  We have had the best wifi here and have been spoiled.  We have enjoyed our five day stay in Summerside but now  it is time to move on.
