After an early morning breakfast we pulled anchor and headed to covered portage cove. Pulling anchor was quite a feat. The pool bottom, although mud, is also full of weeds. Every few feet I had to clear them from the rode and remove one big huge clump at the end of the anchor.
Portage Cove is a short distance from the town of Killarney, so we anchored in the cove and then took the dingy across for an experience of the town. Herbert Fisheries is the best I have eaten. The fish is caught fresh every day and cooked to perfection. The French fries are the best I have had.
We took a slow ride back to Little Current today after going back to Killarney in the boat. We spent the morning taking in the local flavor and sights.
Our trip ends with a Ranger Tug Rendesvous. Fourteen boats will be in attendance and it is a great time with great people who share stories of their adventures and help one another with ideas and specifics about their boats. I won't bore you with the rendezvous, so until next time, Arrivederci!
As you enter Covered Portage you will notice the outline of an Indian chief's head. This is a natural formation and actually several layers of rock behind one another that cause this illusion.
