We join the Westport Boosters Club

3 June 2009, 1930 hours, Westport

Westport is our kind of overnight stop: A five-minute walk from the public docks we can purchase a fresh baguette and sweet raisin butter tarts from Westport Bakery, house-smoked salmon from Salmon House, and fresh produce and groceries of any kind at Kudrinko’s Country Kitchen supermarket.

Not to mention Yvon, the helpful harbourmaster, docks with power, water and a view—all for $1 per foot in dockage fees. Plus shower and laundry facilities, albeit a few minutes away. And WiFi right on the docks. Well, for us Mac users, not right on the docks; we have to walk up the Westport Visitor’s Centre where the WiFi is free and blazingly fast.

When we realize there is a second bakery in the village, as well as a store called Rosie Yumski’s Fine Foods, we decide to stay a second day.

The French baguette from Westport Bakery, quite possibly, is the best baguette we’ve ever eaten in Ontario.
