Day 10 - Port d'Escale

By Corey
We awoke on the wall at Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue to the sounds of trains and cars flying by Hwy 20 and the adjacent rail line. This day marks the last day of WhiteBread :( Thankfully the grocery store across the street had some. Oh, and this is Jonathans last day too. Aaron and Michelle drove up to eat brunch at one of the waterfront bars then took Jonathan home.
The plan for this day was suppose to be simple: 30 miles of cruising in the sun, two locks and we're in Montreal. This could not be further from the truth. We waited for a total of 4 hours at the locks for three ships to pass and three massive thunderstorms. So we took on the 7 knot current in the dark, I found it pretty fun, then again, I wasn't driving. We arrived in Port d'Escale at 22:30 and met Bob and Judy on their trawler "Sanderling" (they were in Napanee half way through July). After connecting water and power we fell asleep in air-conditioned comfort. (How did Mr. Nautical lose his power?)
