I left Brockville and did a few long days to get to Whitby to meet the crew member for the last leg home. I left early in the morning and motor sailed all day through the Thousand Islands till I got to Olympic Harbour or Porstmouth in Kingston. That’s the one beside the now closed Maximum security jail. From Kingston I did another long day to Belleville and at 3 pm passing Bellville I decided to carry on in spite of dark clouds and thunder in the distance to the Murray Canal. I arrived there at 6 pm and managed to get through there before it closed at 7 at night. I moored along the wall on the Brighton side of the canal and was now able to leave the next morning without having to wait for the canal to open.
From Trenton or the Murray Canal I had a short day to Cobourg. There I was able to do some much needed laundry and refueled for the next day to Whitby.
I arrived in Whitby and stayed there while I waited for my friend Klaas Dekens to arrive by GO train from Hamilton. Once aboard we stayed the second night and left in the morning for Toronto.
There we went to the Royal Canadian Yacht Club on Toronto Island and enjoyed ourselves there. They gave us a complimentary pass to Centre Island and we wandered off to visit the parkland.
From RCYC we left the next day to go to the north shore and walked downtown Toronto. We went up Spadina Avenue and had lunch in Chinatown. In the evening we took in a Blue Jay’s game. They lost to Detroit but in spite of that we had a great time.
We walked back to the boat and in the morning left for 50 Point. We arrived back at 50 early in the afternoon and completed the journey. For a list of stats about the trip stay tuned as I will do one more posting about the miles and time spent.
