Charlottetown to Souris

We had planned to leave by 7am, but I was slow getting going, and the Raymarine GPS failed to get a fix for a long time.  It finally started working and we got out into Hilllsborough Bay right at 8.  I took a few pix, and then we had a smooth, but motoring trip to Souris.  The wind was coming straight from where we wanted to go, so no sailing today.
8/24, 8:30 am:  Blockhouse Point Light is the 2nd oldest lighthouse on PEI
We saw at least 10 harbor seals alsong the way, and near Souris, more harbor porpoises than we could count.
8/24, 5:30pm:  Fin of a harbor porpoise
There was no answer from Souris Marina, but we got some help from some folks on the dock and tied up behind the Morris 42.  It had looked so grand yesterday, but Anomaly made the Morris look so small. We walked up to Shirleys Place for very yummy fish and chips.  Jon had a chocolate dipped ice cream cone.  Cars were coming and going to eat from this popular tiny fast-food stand.

Eric showed up around 7pm and we got registered and the key to the very nice washrooms.
It was a beautiful day and the light towards evening was stunning.
8/24, 8pm:  Sunset over Souris Harbor
