The great part of that stay was meeting up with Bill and Maryanne and sharing some happy hours and a nice trip up to Grand Case to a wonderful french restaurant overlooking the bay and then heading back for the Virgins with them. They are a wonderful couple from Maine and we hope to connect with them later in the season and maybe get together in Maine or Haliburton this summer.
Exiting the bridge was a little hairy. It opens up and us and everyone else were all jockeying for a place waiting in line with a huge crosswind and the true to form stink pot boats ( motor cruisers) just butting in and passing with no regard that they have twin engines , so have way more maneuverability than us single engine sailboats. And, we all have No Brakes. we got 3 feet outside the channel and touched ground while the stink pot crowded us over. Yes, it's that shallow and tight in there.
