Kilcoursie Bay, Killbear Provincial Park

Getting back on the water again feels great, but we had not cruised for a few weeks. Between the Grand Banks Rendezvous and the bicycle trip to Vermont and Montreal and the trip home seemed like a very long time.

First stop, Kilcoursie Bay a short distance from Parry Sound. The Bay has a spectacular beach all around the bay with a campground and public beaches. We found a number of boats already anchored in the expansive harbor. An island in the middle of the Bay offered more protection if we were able to tuck Crawdad behind it, but with so many occupants already enjoying the view, the outside worked fine for us. We dropped the dinghy and the boys were ready to hit the beaches!

See this mud hole? Doesn't it look inviting? I asked Jim to go in with me, but Buddy was the only boy who wanted to go in.

This is what we could have looked like. My skin could have used some work.....

You are lucky I don't post most of the pictures I take of the rocks. The pink granite is gorgeous with the delicate green lichen.

A peaceful anchorage in Kilcoursie Bay. With little wind for the night, we anchored well away from the crowd.

Bet there are a few sailors out there who will recognize this boat. Can you see the number? They sailed within 5 feet of Crawdad.  Of course I didn't shoot quickly enough.
