This is our first sail last week!  We anchored out on Irvine Bay for 2 nights and we tested The Cat (TC). Our wonderful friend and most accomplished sailor, Rob, raced us and took some photos!  He has a beautiful 42 Catalina and beat us easily up wind. Down wind though, our ketch had a little advantage.

Today, we continued storing items we will need and finding homes for them. Cataloguing everything so we can quickly find things. 

We purchased  a small cart for carrying groceries and fuel over long distances. 

Yesterday, we had several visitors, come and say goodbye and see TC. Denise, Helena,Jacinthe and John. David’s brother Harry and his girlfriend Brenda-Lynn also visited with her sister Lori on Saturday.  Yesterday, we dined on Adenon’s rugged vessel docked a few boats down and ate curried goat and chicken with naan and shrimp. I made some chicken bulgur which not many ate when they tasted Adenon’s food. David I think had 75% of the goat. 

I am finding myself, adjusting to tiny living, off-grid and away from family, friends, church, hobbies and all I was familiar with.  It has been a challenge so far and I hope that this week, the demasting goes smoothly and the weather behaves so we can have a smooth motor across Lake Ontario to Oswego this weekend.
