Left Halifax – Mahone Bay, 12 ft swells, Wind, Fog – Day 62

After spending another night on the boat in Halifax, we spent a few hours walking around downtown and then we headed for Lunenburg, NS. It would be about 100 miles as we would go into Mahone Bay first. Sue and John spent an extra day in Halifax before catching up with us in Lunenburg.
