Hunkered down and loving it on a rainy day

Thursday September 16 1100 hours
Port Credit Yacht Club

We wake to our first rainy day of the cruise. The skies are dark, it's pouring and we are hunkered down aboard At Last!

This type of day calls for comfort food. Brunch is hot corned beef hash and diced potatoes topped with gooey eggs and sliced tomatoes on the side.

Good day to be curled up in bed to catch up on reading and to listen to the pitter-patter of the rain on the pilothouse roof. As we’re connected to electricity at the dock, we’re able to run our small ceramic heater which keeps the humidity down and the cozy factor high.

We wait for a break in the weather to bike around the Lakefront Promenade trail. PCYC is a great stop to walk or bike the trails.

A Rabba supermarket is about a 10-minute bike ride. We pick up buttered croissants to have with our thinly sliced San Marino prosciutto.

After several hours at the MacBook Pro, we are finally current with the blog and emails to friends and family.

Dinner is a simple Saskatchewan smoked-ham steak, see-it-again couscous with diced tomatoes and green onions.

For dessert, the Captain has picked up two small Ste Julie sucre a la creme (cream fudge).

The rain has stopped, skies are clearing and tomorrow promises to be another gorgeous day in September.
