Cambridge Municipal Yacht Basin

What a pleasant stay in Mill Creek.  It was such a calm night, we probably could have anchored anywhere.  A nice calm night and morning, however, does not always bode well for sailing.  The forecast of 10 to 15 knots out of the southwest never materialized.  Instead we experienced less than 10 knots out of the west northwest, then the southwest.  As a result, the motor had to assist the sails.  We recall these light summer winds from our visit two years ago.  The upside is that it makes for easier docking.

We settled in here about 3 pm, met our neighbors on a Whitby 42 (built in Fort Meyers as opposed to Toronto like Hold Fast), paid our bill, ate and then took a nap.  Brad showed up around 6 pm and we must have talked out on the dock for about 3 hours.  He and Sabrina, on ‘Joint Venture,’ crossed the Gulf Stream with us back to the states last year.  They are just three slips down.  It will be good to spend some time with them.

We have had some communications with a local church and they are glad to have our help with their VBS (Vacation Bible School) over the next 10 days.  At the transient rate for the yacht basin, a 10 day stay costs about the same as one month.  We opted for one month.  Now we can help with more than VBS and also get a longer visit in with Brad and Sabrina.

Even though we stayed here two years ago, I am sure there will be more to tell about Cambridge and the new people we meet.   We do not typically update our blog unless we move our location, however I will try to keep you periodically updated as to our local activities.

Love to all,
