August 11th and 12th Baddeck
On route to Baddeck we had to pass under the draw bridge at the Barra Straits. Our fellow cruisers were stopping at Maskell's Harbour for the evening so we popped in for an afternoon swim and a beer and then bid our Nova Scotia friends farewell before heading on up the lake to Baddeck. Another scorcher day on the lake -awesome! We were on a mooring ball in Baddeck so we called the marina and had ice delivered by water taxi. Too funny!Whipped up some seafood chowder with coconut milk for dinner. The following day was spent poking in all the tourist shops and walking about town. We all enjoyed Alexander Graham Bell's museum and got caught in a downpour on the way home. Too bad we left the hatches open on the boat! Later, we took the water taxi back to town and went out for a lovely dinner as this was Dorothy's last evening with us on our excellent adventure. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together and we'll never look at bouys as plain & boring again! LOL.
