Meldrum Bay

Meldrum Bay (3 of 7)So after a beautiful night in the Benjamins, we woke once again to beautiful skies.  In preparation of our departure Melodie planned to scurry off and do some exploring… I knew what she was up to, so I accompanied her to make sure that the rock choices weren’t so abundant that the boat would not get up on plane!!  After that, we loaded up the dinghy’s and prepared for our run westward on the North Channel towards Meldrum Bay.

The ride was once again beautiful, flat seas, and the biggest waves coming from our own boat wakes.  Prior to departing the Benjies I had contacted John the harbormaster at Meldrum Bay to make arrangements for dockage as well as reservations at the only restaurant in town – The Meldrum Bay Inn.  When we arrived at Meldrum Bay, those needing fuel replenished and we were provided one dock for the entire group.  It worked out great and everyone had a great place to tie up.


The cocktail hour began, and just before 5:30 we headed up to the restaurant, which was an absolute delight!  Outside on the front patio having some of the best cuisine we have had on the trip.  A great place to go!!

Meldrum Bay (6 of 7)After dinner we all went up to the boaters lounge – a new facility that was not here the last time we visited.  The building had a great upstairs lounge area with WiFi, and outdoor deck as well as an indoor seating area.  Downstairs were the showers and restrooms, laundry are and a game room.  We had a great time closing out the night there, catching up on our trip and our friends and family back home.


Day 2

The next day was spent doing another dinghy run, circumnavigating Meldrum Bay absorbing  the scenery as we went.  We found a great little beach there and the group proceeded to prepare a yummy cookout of coney dogs complete with chili, onions and all the fixins!!  We spent the rest of the time having a skipping stone competition, some with great success, some not so much!!  What a great way to spend the afternoon.


While on the beach Rod decided to take a walk in the woods, and next thing we know we hear a womans voice, and Rod comes out of the woods with a forest elf!!  Come to find out, this person was camping on her own out in the woods, and wanted to know what time it was!?!?!  Anyhow, I’m sure you can imagine what stories we came up with from that event!!

Then it was back to the boats, escaping from Rod’s new found friend for an evening of chit-chat on the dock, before calling it a night.
