Halifax Departure

2 Jul

Eight months following wind and sea succeeded by one month tethered ashore. Neither seems real; in both cases, time has flown. This morning, Mo tugs gently at her anchor. She is happy enough here, as am I, but she knows we must move on. Much has been accomplished but not yet the goal. The whole of the north lies between us and a return.

As is the case wherever Mo touches, here we have been the recipients of much kindness. Tony and Connie, Wayne, Rob, Sebastiaan and Rhiannon, Ben, John, and Sandy are just a few of those who have helped to ready us for the next leg.

In fact, Mo was ready yesterday, but her skipper was not. He chose to dally, futzing with this and that bit of stowage, and in the evening and after the rain ended, taking one last, long stroll to see the town and her fireworks.

The dingy will come aboard after this note. And then we will be on our way to St John’s, on our way to the rest of the story…

Canada Day fireworks from a central Halifax neighborhood.
Quite a show and something one would never see in urban California.
