We left the Liscomb Lodge Marina this morning after a pleasant night. Our destination today is Halifax, Nova Scotia about 90 miles away. As we left the dock the water was like glass and reflected wonderfully.

Low tide as we leave the dock. We were told the tide here is about 6 feet.
Trying to capture a peaceful feeling in a picture.
A periodic channel marker was the only indication of human presence.
Yes, there is an eagle flying above the trees and you can barely see it here.
As the Liscomb fjord widened the peaceful scene just expanded.
For over an hour we cruised in and out and around small islands and through narrow channels along the Nova Scotia coast. It would have been a shame to have just passed by it all a few miles out to sea.
Once out of the fjord and into the ocean along the coast the water was a dream. The gentlest of swells was the only indication that we were on the ocean in Nova Scotia.
Another noble lighthouse quietly standing watch on a deserted island, assisting marine travelers.
We were making very good time so a particularly good looking spot to bottom fish grabbed us. These are nice size pollock, a cod family fish. We did some catch and release and then continued on our way.
Now that’s a nice fish!
Cari got into the act too. She said he fought a lot harder than he looks here.
A bell buoy with no waves to make it ring.
Getting closer to downtown Halifax, NS where we will dock at Bishop’s Landing at the Waterfront Marina.
3 boats…a paddle wheeler, a large yacht at dock and a small speedboat.
Looking further up into the Halifax harbor from the marina.
The iboats.com boat docked at the Halifax Marina, right along a shopping and restaurant-lined street.
Wow, what a setting for iboats.com to advertise! We should get a bonus.
The very large yacht docked in front of us is from Newport, RI.
