We had a rolly, rocky day on the water yesterday on a cool overcast day. We managed lo log 80 miles in 9 and a half hours to reach the village of Riviere-au-Tonnerre. The entrance was well marked directing us to a fishing wharf. We tied up with the fishing boats, North Star blended right in.

We took a nice walk into town and around the beach. It is nice to get off the boat, last time was at Baie Pancrace. No internet or cell phone coverage here.

Our usual players traveled with us, loons, seals, dolphins and whales. We are now seeing Gannets as well. We did not see one other boat all day.

Up early this morning to avoid the wind predicted for this afternoon. We left the dock at 4:50 with the sun shining and a perfectly calm see. It was 5 degrees outside and 11 in the boat, we were anxious to get the heater going.

It is calmer than I expected so far but a lot cooler. We won't be needing shorts it looks like.
