We, like everyone else across Ontario, Quebec and onward, had very heavy rains today. Very cool here as it is coupled with the high tides. The highest tide is tomorrow night, Thursday, and so the boats go into the cal sèche Friday evening. Is it ever nice to not be racing down here after work and hoping we make it in time. We will post separately about the boat extravanganza.
I took a series of pictures after the rain when we were dog walking (euphemism for yet another chance to take pictures). The paths had obviously had deluge strength water, the colours were so heightened with the dusk and the skies were magnificent.
You can also see how high the tide is. At the marina there is no slope at all on the ladder to the docks. Take a look at the wharf picture with the Cost Guard crews. There are couple of crews here doing maneuvers but if you notice in the picture the tide is so high that their heads are level with the top of the wharf. Also Indian Rock (Pointe d’Islet) is almost but not quite an island. Quite spectacular. For those of you who know the bay Alan was able to walk to his dinghy at low tide and bring it in so that is the big difference between the two tides.
Thinking of all of you who don’t get to be here.
