Crammond Islands

St. Peter's was a very nice town to visit. It took a bit, but we finally found a church for Sunday morning. Twenty or thirty of us met in the back of a fire station. We accepted their invitation to return Sunday night. It was a blessing to know them. This morning we did a short hike to St. Peter's canal, across the lock and then up to Mount Grenville. It felt good to get some cardio in and the view was well worth it.

After obtaining a last few grocery items, we slipped the mooring with Marble Head on our minds. As we wound through the lake toward our destination, we noticed that the two boats in front of us were headed the same way. That was all it took to alter our plans to consider Pringle Island or Crammond Islands. After a little discussion, we felt Crammond would be more protected should we have a thunderstorm tonight, and it was not much further. As we turned in, taking in the beauty of the undeveloped coastline, I saw two sailboats anchored a good distance apart. We got closer and I realized the people were swimming near each of their boats. I guess 66F looks pretty welcoming after coming from 42F water. I have no urge whatsoever to jump in.

Myron spent a good deal of time on the internet back in St. Peter's researching hiking trails near appealing anchorages. One of the nice things about the lakes is that we can get in a hike and wait noon to relocate to another anchorage. We are very glad we came here.

We do not have internet anymore and doubt we will have any until we get to Baddeck.

Love to all,
