As some of our readers noted, yesterday was our 1 year anniversary. 365 days before that we set sail from Kingston, Ontario headed south. A year ago today we cleared into the US at Oswego and began preparations for our trip down the canals. So much has happened since that time.
Yesterday was our first day back at Port Louis Marina and we were once again thrust back into the social arena. The big event last evening was Movie Night on J-dock being hosted by our friends Bill and JoAnne on the trimaran Ultra. They hoisted a big screen on the back of their boat and we watched Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in The Tourist with a bunch of other cruisers while they served us popcorn. How cool. I understand there is another party down that way tonight too. Busy, busy.
In 30 minutes or so we’re heading out to help our buddy Mike sail his catamaran Happy Times into the marina. His wife and daughter are back in the US at the moment visiting friends and family so he’s all alone on the boat. Docking here single handed might be a bit of a chore.
