Gilley's ... not big, but really good!

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions
We left Snug Harbor and headed just 16+ miles to an anchorage off Stairs Island. Only problem was, the multiple access points to get dogs to shore in the review we read ... aren't here. We think they are 39" below water. Pretty anchorage, quiet but it took both of us to take Cally to shore; as I was with Cally and Rip kept the dinghy near by the rock formation we had to land on. Cally did great doing her business on moss area of the flattest rock area we could find. Not much space to roam, but enough to do business.

Wide view of where we are within the whole of Georgian Bay
Now you can see we are not in the open Georgian Bay area,
but in the islands and rocks along the shore
Day 100 & 101 ... Saturday/Sunday, July 29 & 30 ... 28.9 miles; 3.5 hours
Stairs Island to Wrights Marina, Byng Inlet, Georgian Bay
A beautiful day to travel today. Bright sunshine, coll/comfortable temps and mild winds. Today we traveled more beautiful shoreline and then out into the open Georgian Bay for 12 miles or so, then into Byng Inlet and Wrights Marina. Great travel day.
