We Leave Pine Tree Island

We left Pine Tree Island at 0636 for the 105-mile run to Trenton, Ontario, where the local Honda dealer was waiting to service our engine for the long trip ahead.  The sun shone, the wind dropped, and the St. Lawrence and Ontario scenery kept entertaining us right through the Bay of Quinte. After finding the right place to “officially” enter Canada, it was just past noon when we returned to the Honda dealer, who informed us that the boat would probably be out of the water overnight. So, here we are, our first night out, at a nearby Travelodge.  At least it has internet access, enabling our first update of this site.  We hope to send another update on the Trent-Severn waterway, but once into the wilds of the Georgian Bay and Northern Passage, we’ll almost certainly be off-line for a week or two. Now to explore the pleasant town of Trenton and, we’re told, a wonderful Italian restaurant on the Trent River.
