Before I say anything else, Wyatt has peed onboard, on his pee pad nonetheless, and taking the companionway like a champ!! Treats abound!
Apologies for the late blog post. We've been saying how much we'd really like to post to the blog, but getting an internet connection is challenging (at the moment) unless we head ashore, find a coffee shop with strong internet and sit for a couple hours. Oh the conveniences of modern life! So, here we are, on a partly sunny Monday in Halifax, NS sippin on coffee and more importantly, saying hi to you!
Wow! Hard to believe we've only been here 4 days. We left Vermont on August 5th after we verified the arrival of some important package deliveries, and arrived in Halifax on Thursday, August 7. We had eager plans to see Aletheia upon our arrival, but it was late and we were exhausted from the 8 hour trip up from our Blue Hill, ME. Nate has distant cousins who happened to be vacationing at the family's summer home and they graciously opened their doors for our quick stopover on our way to Canada. Blue Hill is a magically wonderful place to visit if you haven't already! ok, so the weather wasn't ideal during this shot, but it was so peaceful watching the rain fall into the ocean from a dry space.

Today's forecast is looking gray and cloudy, but an afternoon sail may be on our agenda!
