We have just spent three delightful lazy days in Clayton, meeting up with three other looper boats. Camaraderie is alive and well.
We enjoyed walking through the town…
And visiting the Antique Boat Museum, where we drooled over the beautiful craftsmanship and designs. This visit was a highlight of our stay, although Mark did enjoy trying the sustenance at the local craft breweries.
We enjoyed sunsets… and watching the big boys pass close by, but not so much their turbulence which meant we rocked and rolled in our berth.
Today we sailed down the St Lawrence River, heads swivelling from side to side, taking in the gorgeous islands and isolated homes adorning these rocky outcrops. We sailed through the area known as ”The Narrows” and was very glad we didn’t meet any ships.
Tonight we are in a lovely marina, Thousand Islands Club, watching people come and go by boat to the restaurant. We have a prime waterside position, listening to the live band on the lawn.
It is hard to know where to look: the islands; the ships passing by; people watching; boat watching; house watching… The possibilities and enjoyment are endless.
Such is Life!
