Rest Day in Bayfield

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

It rained in the morning so we slept in, had a big breakfast, and relaxed on board.

In the afternoon we headed down to the commercial area of Bayfield which is a short walk up a beautiful wooded path from the marina.

First order of business was coffee for me at a place recommended by fellow sailors. This shop roasts its own coffee beans and the coffee was delicious. After that we scouted out the bakeries and found some amazing scones for Rick at a place called the Black Dog. After Rick had his fill of pastries, he went to the bookstore called The Village Bookshop and settled in with a sailing book that he bought about sextants.

The Black Dog has an array of delectable treats!!

I was free to do some shopping and I bought some lovely gifts at an art gallery called The Main Street Gallery. The proprietors were a couple of sailors called Linda and Jim. They had driven by the marina last night, noticed a new boat in town, and were surprised that anyone had made it in to Bayfield yesterday. I told them I was one of the intrepid sailors who came in through the rough weather on the Ontario 32.

This vine on a fence on Main Street caught my eye.

I bought myself an old clay planter shaped like a duck. We’ll have to find room in the boat for my gift-to-self until I can hand it off to Jesse when we meet up at the reunion in Kincardine this weekend.

We had a good day of rest. I made a pasta and salad dinner. We walked the beach in the evening.

Our plan is to get up at 5:15 tomorrow morning and sail to Kincardine. We think it should take about 9 hours. After checking a number of weather forecasts, we know that the weather will be beautiful.
