Before we weigh anchor, we have been researching the proper navigational charts that will support compatibility with our AIS system (bonus!). Today, we purchased digital charts from X-Traverse and will use these interactive charts on the iPad iNavX application to coordinate our waypoints and routes. We've purchased/downloaded both Canadian and US charts for $70 (USD); a fraction of the cost of other chartplotters. As we become more iNavX-savvy we can decide to export our waypoints to Google Earth and share our GPS coordinates, waypoint and photos onto Facebook (wow, how technology lets us stay connected!)
I've already lost track of the days, but here are some pics from Tuesday when Wyatt and I took a run along Halifax streets, came back to the boat and made a wonderful sunset dinner for two - Spicy Penne Pasta with Sun-dried Tomato Sauce and meatballs (from this little place - Highland Drive Butchery), Sautéed Broccoli & Zucchini with red onion and garlic, and carrots and avocados. We really enjoyed the evening and even had tea and gingersnaps with our neighbors aboard Moonlight Maid.
