What a beautiful three days though, no rain, no wind and not even one cloud in the clear blue sky. It was by far the best weather we have had all season.
Our summer was great, don't get me wrong, but the threat of violent thunderstorms and the humidity at 99% basically every day and Environment Canada posting HEAT WARNING all summer long with a soaring average ambiant temperature of 40 degrees, was not comparable to the dry air, cool night and beautiful days of that end of summer weekend!
The only down side was the lack of wind, but it was not really a big issue since our sailing season has been marked by significant wind, pretty much every day...
Labour Day Monday, 06:00 in the morning, I hear the sound of a chain being lifted and it wakes me. We are anchored in a quiet anchorage with about 15 other boats. The silence and the quietness of this peaceful morning is quite unsettling... The classic chain against the bow roller is a familiar sound and out of curiosity, I have a look through the hatch.
Other than the sailboat leaving early before the rush, I realize that we are completely enveloped in a thick morning fog slowly lifting from the water. The swirls of white puff are moving graciously across the water and the scene is quite breathtaking. I cannot help myself, I run back down to our aft cabin and wake Dan up. He is not a morning person, but for nature's spectacle, he will make an effort!!!
