Re: Maine and North

I have cruised as far as the south coast of Newfoundland and it is incredible but a long, long way from walruses. You can see many whales and once around the corner to the north side of the island ice bergs. You need to be very self-sufficient even in Newfoundland, let alone further north. There are villages with a few provisions and sometimes fuel but that is it. You can tie up at village docks and can anchor often in fairly deep locations. Wonderful and exciting cruising, but make sure you are confident in yourself and your boat.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
