July 31 – Day 76, North Conway, NH

Today we drove from North Conway, NH to Georgetown, ME and back. One the way down of course we had to stop at L. L. Bean in Freeport – no trip to Maine would be complete without it. Then we picked up tbe car and although it was stored inside it was still covered in … Continue reading

July 30 – Day 75, North Conway, NH

After a day off we are on the move once more. This time en route to Georgetown, ME yet again to pick up our car. I must say, travel by boat at 6 mph is much more relaxing than travel by car at 60 mph.

July 28 – Day 74, Ottawa, ON

After just one day off we were back to the boat today in John’s car (ours is in for service) to pickup what we couldn’t fit in to bring home the first time (and to check that we had actually closed all of the ports). 

July 26 – Day 73, Ottawa, ON

A hot, sunny day with a ligbt breeze. Time to get the boat cleaned up before we head home for the weekend and then back to Georgetown, ME to pick up our car next week. Spent the entire day cleaning and packing up for the trip home. Had a late lunch at the restaurant. Got … Continue reading

July 24 – Day 71, Oswego, NY – UPDATED

Quite overcast and cool this morning with strong winds so we’ll sit tight for another day at least. In 71 days we’ve come 707 nm from Robinhood Marine Center in Georgetown, ME to the Oswego Marina in Oswego, NY. However only 18 of those days were “sailing” days. It was spring when we left, today … Continue reading

July 23 – Day 70, Oswgo, NY – UPDATED

It started off a hot sunny day with absolutely calm water, but the clouds are moving in and the breeze is picking up. While we missed the thunderstorms yesterday and had only a light sprinkle late last night, we might not be so lucky today. Kaizen left early this morning hoping to make Kingston by … Continue reading

July22 – Day 69, Oswego, NY – UPDATED

We had a late start today to motor the remaining 9.77 nm and locks 3 through 8 to the Oswego Marina. We’ll get diesel and a pump out here while we wait for a fine day to cross Lake Ontario to Kingston. We finally have good Internet access here as well. Apparently Harbor Fest starts … Continue reading
