August 13, 2013 Day 83   Cape George Bay
Ballantyne’s Cove Harbor Marina
Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada

We decided to stay in port today and may be here until Friday. It was nice today but the rain and wind started this evening.  

We took our laptops to the office today to have internet access since we can’t get it on the dock. Joyce also did some laundry at the marina. We can’t do any laundry on the boat while we are here because there are no water hook-ups, and we would run out of our own supply quickly!  This little marina is more for local fishing boats than transients.  They have 30 amp power but very few connections. We moved to a different slip so we could get connected after we arrived.  We are in a local boat owner’s slip and he is away for a few days.  The little town of Antigonish is a 30 minute drive so we cannot shop either! But, it is a beautiful location, even without all the amenities, and we are happy to be here!

We invited Ron and Lisa over for a pork tenderloin dinner and had a fun evening. (Thanks to Lisa for bringing the fabulous baked brie appetizer.) The four of us may rent a car tomorrow and drive to Cape Breton along the Cabot Trail, and leave our boat here at Ballantyne’s Cove Marina for a few days.  This will give us a chance to see more of Nova Scotia even though by car.  We will finalize plans in the morning.
