The Great Loop, going through the Trent Severn system and to the North Channel.

Simon, it is interesting how it goes. We found many of the people to be rude and u pleasant and mainly interested in you as a wallet with legs. Even Papeete, a large city, was much nicer. We were in Bora Bora in 2011 and the yacht club was still being renovated and closed and you could use the moorings free which was nice.

Our biggest disappointment in the South Pacific was Bora-Bora. People were not very friendly and it was just too touristy. Moorea on the other hand we loved.
I had a totally different experience in Bora Bora, we where there for Bastille day and got invited to two party's with the locals, and the Highlight was being invited and attending a true Polynesian wedding. In 2008 the yacht club had just changed hands and was closed for renovations, We still stayed there using their moorings; We felt like part of the family.
I spent 2 weeks at Moorea love that place as well, but had less interaction with the locals.

Where I really want to go, though, one day, is the south Pacific. I look at Bora Bora all of the time on Google Earth, and think about sailing there and anchoring there.

It's doable, I just have to decide if I want to devote the time and money for it.

Anywhere and everywhere, meeting up with other cruisers and especially members on this forum. I have a list and plan to catch up with a lot of the old timers and regulars.

And assuming the wallet wasn't a factor -- Ireland.

Re: Where would you go?

We have been fully provisioned and free from responsibilities and cruising as we please for the last eleven years. We poke about seasonally from Maine in the mid-summer to the Keys and Bahamas in the winter. We usually stay in the St. Johns River of North Florida for the Thanksgiving to Christmas Hollidays with family. We have about thirty ports that we regularly return to and feel that we have a sense of community at these places. We don't use up our destinations as those that claim, "been there, done that", but we look forward to returning.

Head west and do a counter clockwise tour of the Great Lakes, when I get to Lake Ontario, a clockwise cruise of the lake, hitting the 1000 islands then along the south shore to the canal, down the canal, and down the east coast to the bahamas, then continue on to the dry tortugas, then over to Cuba.
We are thinking about the Great Lakes. We have spent some time on Lake Superior and loved it. I would like to spend a couple of years poking around. What a treasure they are.
