Tuesday was a perfect day for chores. Despite the rain I went to shore to do laundry, shower and taxy to Picton for provisions. A high wind forecast convinced most people to seek the shelter of a better anchorage or to tuck into the marina. I chose the marina to recharge the batteries and to peddle around the county roads. Black River Cheese is always a treat for its ice cream. The ride justifies the calories! Then back tracked to Waupoos Winery where I sampled a few wines.
So I finish this post with memories of a very special visit. A couple of years ago, my folks were invited to a wedding in St Catharines. They drove up with my great aunt Sybil. We agreed that they would pick me up in Waupoos since I was going to be there on the boat. I prepared a meal and they came aboard to enjoy it. Dad was familiar with the boat. When we first got it, he joined me for a weekend of sailing. As for Mom, it was her first time to see it and in all of her 90 years, Aunt Sybil had never stepped foot on a sailboat. I will cherish that moment forever! I'm glad I took some pictures to better remember it!
