Long travel day today.  We left Port Colborne as soon as the winds turned east. Getting underway was great for about an hour then the north winds started.  Hitting the side of the boat with only 3 foot waves but tossing us around a bit made it a queasy afternoon.  We did 160 miles and landed in Rondeau Bay with a very much needed diesel fill up.

Conductance full out proved to be a well tuned boat. We relied on electronics and a wish after getting to Port Stanley and finding out that they just took out their diesel tanks. No diesel until Rondeau Bay which was cutting it close. Scott watched the fuel gauges and range until we pulled into Erieau Marina with 3 gallons to spare. I think that was the nail biter for the day.

Now the winds have died down and left us with completely flat water to look at hoping for a good travel day tomorrow.

At Rondeau Bay we are staying at Erieau Marina with wifi, a pool, gym, LCBO and beer store along with the marine store all at the marina.  We walked through the town to the beach where a typical Lake Erie fishing village has come alive with cottages, tourists, cute little mom and pop restaurants.
