This is the good and protected marina at Shippagan for pleasure craft. The commercial fishing boats were next to us but in a separate harbor area.

  1. Hi you two!! Guess who we met up with today in Cuyahoga Falls Ohio. we were at Dale’s brother’s funeral and ran into the Zitzman’s. Brother Zitzman was Bruno’s missionary companion in Germany. Small world!! Bobbi took a picture of them and sent it to you via her cell to Cari’s cell. Lot’s have been happening here including we have a baby at our house we are taking care of.
    Dale & Bobbi

    • Hi Bobbi and Dale. How terrific to hear from you…and how fun that you ran into the Zitzmans in Ohio. Dave and Linda are the best. We are sorry to hear about Dale’s brother’s funeral and we extend our sincere condolences to you. A new baby at your house? Wow. You guys are troopers for sure.

  2. Hello looks like your having a lot of fun on your trip how much gas for your trip start to when your done have a great night to you and yours happy Canada day EH LOL

    • HI Fred. Yes, we are having a great time! Our boat, when fully loaded, burns about a gallon a mile at cruising speed. 1/2 to 1/3rd that when we are going more slowly. So I won’t know how much gas I’ll use until we are finished but I can guess reasonably close. We were hoping for some fireworks here in Shippagan for Canada Day today but no such luck.

      iboats’ Captain,

      Bruno

    • Hi Pat. We loved them too. There were so many fun colored boats, not just the typical black or gray colors usually associated with commercial vessels. Thanks for the post and for following along.

      Bruno
