29 July – 1 August 2013
We arrive at the outpost of Gaines Marina Rouse Point, NY approximately one mile south of the Canadian border.
Beautiful spot – most of the regulars are from Montreal about an hour away by car. Arrangements have been made to forward mail here; we take on fuel - 220 gallons, give the boat a wash down - all looks right with the world. The temperature is definitely cooler at 0600 it was 11celsius – getting ready for the break north (52degrees) – but it warmed up to 72 degrees.
As it turns out two day priority delivery for here means four days…
So we entertain ourselves by going over charts, reading guide books practicing our French, walking the beautiful neighborhoods of the town and chatting with the marina regulars and locals, etc.

So we came to the conclusion we need to pull a one eighty and go south -
Florida here we come!
