August 28 Port Austin

Published by Kip at 3:06 pm under Uncategorized

I checked on the bat this morning and during the night it jumped ship. But it certainly is a long way from its friends. We cleaned topsides today and were they ever filthy. With Bill’s help we got it done in about two hours and Royal Eagle lookd good again.  Right after we finished it started raining and continued most of the day. The Bowmans called and they are underway in the SW winds heading for Port Austin. They arrived about 1600 along with their granddaughter Olivia and her friend Katarina an exchange student from Berlin, Germany. We all got together for a spaghetti dinner on Royal Eagle. It was great catching up with them and hearing some first hand tales about the 5 summers they spent on their boat Simpatico in the Canadian Maritimes. I thought it was cold up in Lake Superior this summer but it was nothing compared the cold the endured upon occasion around Labrador.  They hope to leave for Harrisville tomorrow and we plan to go around the “Thumb” to Harbor Beach.
