An expected storm front is moving in for about 3 days.  Since we are in the New York City of the north we decided to stay here until the front passes.  I’ll let you know what treasures we find here in the Bruce Peninsula.  Note that cell service is nonexistent for us.  Email and Internet communication only.

We went to the Parks Canada visitation Centre and saw an interactive show on bats.  The centre is small but we managed to spend over an hour there.  Following the Bruce Trail for a bit we embarked on an observation tower overlooking the entrance of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron.  Sorry no pics .  It has been threatening rain all day so no pics because of it.  I left the boys at the observation tower to do a 5 km hike and headed back on the bike to the boat.  They say that Burnt Point on the water was beautiful. They were splashed by the 6 ft waves crashing on the shore.  The hike was supposed to be a  1 hour hike but in reality it is more of a 3 hour hike and not easy.  Boys were tired but elated by the sites.  I went back to the boat and biked to the grocery store and liquor store for some wine and groceries.  I had to batten down the hatches as I could see the storm rolling in.  Of course the boys made it back before dinner was started and both were asking for dinner.  BBQ was done just as the rain started.  Good quiet day overall but no travel time to log.  Now we are down at least one day.

More recently Scott has found an electrical problem on the port side.  Scott, I know what you’re going to do tomorrow.  So far it is not the easy fix.
