In the morning (after an amazing breakfast at the club) we move Boundless to a different slip so we can take a closer look at the ding on the port side. Paint has been scrapped away but there isn’t a hole. The decision is made that we can still proceed and get the repairs done in Halifax. With the new plan in place Marty and Neil take the rental car into town to get groceries while I stay behind to clean up the boat. We plan to leave around 1600 on a rising tide and we manage to slip our lines by 1630.  The wind is on the nose but we are able to motor sail with the main up. We continue on through the night.

Monday morning motoring toward Rimouski
 A pod of Beluga Whales

The river is much wider now and In the morning we spot a pod of Beluga whales in the distance, then just after lunch we are joined by Dolphins. We motor on through the day and arrive in Rimouski at 1800. We pull into the marina but the staff have all gone home. Thankfully another boater is around and gives us the codes to the gate and the showers. With Boundless safely tied up we head into town to have a “Brewski in Rimouski”.
