I was sorry we didn't get to see more of you this summer, but your not at the dock much, and we're still learning this sailing thing. Still Moorings is a nice place to hang around until our skills match our plans. Looking forward to seeing you next spring.
Yep, I did respond to your Tall Ships thread...

Our pleasure on the welcome. We seldom stay at the dock, typically Fri. nights if we arrive late, then gone early Sat., back Sun. and head home... sucks being 2 hours away. We were up to check out the tarps on the boat on Sun. Jan. 2.

Will see you in the spring, we're usually up mid April and in the water by the end of April.

That shot of Louisa looks a lot like Baie Fine. Along the same range that come from Silver Peak.

Checked out your blog. Looks like you guys had a good summer. Great shot of the 2 girls having a blast.

Canoeing was 25-30 years ago, much younger and stronger, and it was a Coleman canoe at 80 lbs. too.


We were in Baie Fine mid Aug. and heard a report on the VHF of a bear swimming across the Pool.

Wow, you guys have tower cranes to haul out.... must be a well off club

I was in TO couple weeks ago and was amazed at the number of tower cranes. Looked like mostly condo's.

Which Lake? The Pool or Cave Lake or? The Pool is accessable off the end of Baie Fine, Cave Lake is only access is by hiking or canoeing / portaging. Both are part of Killarney Provincial Park, which is a wilderness park.

keldee, I spent many 1 and 2 week canoe trips through Killarney and have hiked to Silver Peak ( the highest point in Killarney) a couple of times. I've even hiked a canoe over the portage that leads up to Topaz Lake and the trail gets even worse farther up the ridge....


This year we took the dinghy down into the Pool and hiked up to Topaz.... musta been about 20-30 people up there. Several boats from a resort had brought people in for the day....
