Gallivanting 2018

We plan to arrive in St. John’s, Newfoundland on Thursday, June 14th. Shortly afterwards, we will begin preparing for launch. Gallivanting will require some “getting ready”, before we are ready for another summer of cruising around the island Newfoundland. This year, we plan to visit the south coast of the island, including a visit to the French islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon.

6 weeks to launch………..

It is zero degrees Celsius and there is about a foot of slush on the ground. 

A significant low pressure is slowly making it’s way East-West through Southern Ontario sucking up warm moist air from the South, which in turn is colliding with some cold air from the North right over Southern Ontario. One minute it is raining, the next it is snowing. Then it is freezing rain and now it is ice pellets. Breaking News……, it is now freezing rain, with a 20 knot wind. It would appear that the boundary between the rain and snow keeps moving North and South.
 
The good news, 9 weeks to launch.

The days are getting longer and the sun is getting warmer.  The Spring equinox is near. There is an awakening of those feelings that one gets when the wind is blowing in your face…. or not, your gyro is rolling, yawing and questioning your levelness. Now, I’m making up words.
 

In about 12 weeks, we will be launching for another Summer on the water.
