|Locking through to the Bras d'Or|
|The canal at St Peter's|
|The harbor at Baddeck|
Notes: There is a tide station at Johnstown, I used it to time my arrival at the Barra Strait bridge. Arrived 1 hour past high tide and found minimal current. Wifi available at Tim Hortons in St Peter and at the yacht club in Baddeck. Being a small town, nearly everything was closed on Sunday in Baddeck, including the grocery store and gas station. Fuel is available at the marina; .30 a liter cheaper at the Esso station behind the yacht club. The inner harbor is full of moorings, but there is good anchorage out towards the lighthouse. This area has numerous remote anchorages and great sailing; one could easily spent a month sailing about in the lakes, but due to the lateness of the season I must keep moving so there is some time for Newfoundland.
