July 21 Nipigon to Red Rock Marina 3.9 NM

Published by Webmaster at 12:28 pm under Uncategorized

I spent the morning updating the blog and sending pictures of CPR slip for Will to post. We then filled our tank with 20 gallons of diesel and left at 1100 for the very short trip south to the town of Red Rock. It was our fourth sunny day in a row although cloud cover is moving in from the west. Once at Red Rock we pulled into the gas dock to register and the wind built up and pinned us on the dock. Several hours later the wind moderated and with the help of several people we got off the dock and went to our slip. We were told by a number of people that the walk into town at Red Rock is shorter than at Nipigon but it is not. I was lucky to catch a ride up to the grocery store to finish my provisioning for the arrival of Will and my four grandsons Brian, Adam Connor and Aidan who will arrive on Saturday at Isle Royale. Kevin and I went to dinner at the Red Rock Inn and it was nice to dine once again on a white table cloth. The ambiance of this old Inn and the food were very good. Tomorrow we are off to Loon Harbour where we will anchor and the make the crossing to Isle Royale on Thursday. Right now the weather forecast is good for both days.
