This was the first sunny day since Saturday with temperatures in the high 70's. We covered about 40 miles to reach Trenton in 4.5 hours. The photo is on the Bay of Quinte near Belleville. This is one of the best places to sail in Ontario as the Bay is deep, wide and windy. I washed the boat for the first time since Winter Harbor. The new Awlgrip paint job seems to keep the boat a lot cleaner and makes it much easier to wash. The military training airport is just east of here and a large 4 engined Hercules short take off jet transport practiced making touch downs all afternoon. Another couple pulled in this afternoon in their 30 ft sedan cruiser with two golden retrievers. They left their condo at Burnt Store near Ft Myers just a month ago and are on their way to their Michigan home for the summer. They will cruise back in the fall and complete the Great Loop then. Tonight we all went to the movie Monster In Law at the nearby theater. The Trent-Severn Canal locks don't open until 9:00AM so there won't be any rush to get going as the first lock is just a mile from the harbor. The locks close at 4:00PM. We hope to cover 12 locks and 30 miles tomorrow to get to Campbellford.
