Dessert at Merrill InnToday like the last 2 days was windy (15-20 mph), overcast and cold (50 degrees F). We left at 7:51 for Picton and arrived at 12:00 noon. The wind was from the North East and blew straight down the Adolphus Reach on our stern. The autopilot couldn't cope with the 3-4 ft waves so we had to steer manually. We were glad to arrive and get out of the waves. Picton is a great Ontario town miles from anywhere so it has a full downtown with lots of stores (no Walmart) and even a theater. We had the finest dinner since Emily's in Beaufort, SC at the Merrill Inn. It is a B&B but also has a restaurant that serves dinner (see photo of dessert). I had the seared pork tenderloin with spatzle. Spatzles are like tiny dumplings made with some kind of sieve. Mavis had a fancy salad and crab cakes with rubarb pie for desert. Tomorrow we cruise to Trenton, the start of the Trent-Severn Canal which will take us to Georgian Bay.
