September 10, Sunday from Wrights Marina in Britt to Little Current ON
We started around 8:30 with a grand goal to make it all the way to Little Current, a town all travelers must pass through to continue into the North Channel of Lake Huron. It was a stretch goal, but it would mean we can do our last Canadian provisioning before heading to the US. Dirk needs his Canadian Maple Leaf cookies and an O Henry bar!
Fortunately the weather and wind was with us. The Georgian Bay was smooth and we were outside of Little Current in less than 8 hours. Unfortunately we had to wait for a swinging bridge to open on the hour but got to the town marina a little after 5pm and took care of the tie up by ourselves – we are getting pretty good at lassoing cleats! The marinas are pretty deserted now and the remaining dock hands have short hours.
We walked through the quiet but cute town – everything was closed – and I found where I can buy groceries in the morning. The restaurant recommended by other boaters was a little pricing, so back to the boat for a veggie chili dinner with burger on the side for Dirk.
