Still in Halifax
Still in Halifax
Still in Halifax, which was more or less expected. When we left Newport we knew that there were still some jobs that needed to be attended to but also knew life would be a bit easier if not less expensive up here. We’ve been sitting under a very persistent low pressure system which started off as a n’or easter so that gives us more motivation to stay at the dock. As with Newport it’s rained most everyday since our arrival. What we didn’t expect was that our new computer which we had sent “over night” has taken five days to get here and that another package which we had sent has also been stuck in Customs Turn-Around, not really gaining any traction on getting to us. The silver lining in these clouds are that the folks here at The Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron have been beyond welcoming and incredibly supportive in helping us cut through the bureaucratic Red Tape.
To add to this, despite my calling Master Card and American Express two weeks prior to departure to advise them of my travels out of the country, due to security reasons, both cards have been shut down, mid purchase… Master Card twice. In the meantime Ullie has been able to shoot the much needed “controlled” crew interviews for the documentary, Sefton has been working as his audio engineer and Dominique has been using this extra time to spend most of her days on the road getting needed provisions. Clinton’s been keeping his eye on the weather system and by all accounts the wind will swing into the north this morning which should help flatten the seas out and allow us to perhaps leave this evening… yet that would all depend on whether the computer gets here or not. Ironic situation; finding Mother Nature more dependable than an “Absolutely, Positively Has To Be There Over Night” shipping service.
