August 28, 2013 Day 98  South Shore of Nova Scotia
Shelburne Harbour Yacht Club
Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Canada

Another day of fog. This was the heaviest yet of our trip. We departed our anchorage at 7:10 and ventured back out into the ocean. We were only 1/8 mile from Outbound and we could not see them. We did not see them until 11:40!  Again, the radar is our only guide. The seas were not bad today but we did have 3 ft. swells for a while.

We arrived at our marina, the Shelburne Harbour Yacht Club at 12:40. (No fog here!)  We headed directly to the fuel dock before going to our face dock.  We have decided to say here two nights – weather coming in! 

Bill walked to the little downtown area and bought engine oil. He also picked up brochures from the visitors center. We will see the historical area, including some museums, tomorrow.  Shelburne was settled in 1783 by Loyalists who left New York and there are many original homes and commercial establishments here.

Joyce stayed on the boat to tackle the laundry and take advantage of having wifi.  She was soon visited by Canadian Customs agents who wanted to see the customs number we were issued when we entered Canada in July. No problem!

Esmeralda arrived around 7pm and we went with them and Outbound to a nearby restaurant. We had already eaten so we tagged long for coffee and dessert.
