August 15, 2013 Day 85   Cape George Bay
Ballantyne’s Cove Harbor Marina
Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada

This is day four at Ballantyne’s Cove.  The winds are strong, gusting to 30 knots, and we are feeling it at the dock.  Another day to get some work done by cleaning the interior of the boat.  Boaters are staying put today. Even the fishermen did not venture out in this wind.

Lisa and Joyce found a small beach and walked along it for a while. This is a rocky beach and we found some interesting rocks that were “keepers”.

thanks Lisa!
We had dinner on board and prepared for our departure tomorrow. We plan to go to an anchorage at Portage Cove, Nova Scotia. First we have to go through a lock at Canso. This will be our final lock on the down east loop!! The blog will be updated the next time we have wifi.
