On days like today, it is easy to dream of sailing away to warmer climes. To escape the drudgery of winter like so many of our cruising friends do when they head south each October and spend their winter days in the sunny Caribbean.
Until we can afford to make the dream a reality, we have to content ourselves with memories of previous trips taken here in Canada.
A day's sailing followed by a safe harbour and the perfect sunset.
