Westport, Nova Scotia
Stephen and I left Grand Manan with the low tide in thick fog, visibility only 1/4 mile. It stayed like that the whole way across to Westport on the end of the Digby neck. Getting in was interesting, we had to time it for ebb tide, which was easy enough but the fog was a challenge. It thinned out just as we were entering the pass, good thing because we still had 3 knots of current. Once again rafting to fishing boats for the night. We hiked out to the Joshua Slochom menorioral and back. Not much to it. There was whale watching tours be offered and a couple of tourist traps. The tidal range was still 4 meters.
