So we made it to Inverness, only a 38 km (24 mile) drive from where we were parked the night before. Inverness is just a small town, but apparently they have a decent beach area. When we were through here in June of 2008 it was pouring rain that day and we hadn't even stopped. But yesterday was decent, although we didn't see the sun all day.
We parked on the main road through town and went for a walk. We ended up walking down to the harbour and beach area, and it looked like there might be a great spot for Sherman in the harbour parking lot.
This could be a great overnight spot. (GPS 46.23053 -61.31824)
It is a great overnight spot!
So after our walk, we moved Sherman down to the harbour. Didn't really do much all day except watch the fishing boats come and go. Ruth and Whiskey went for another walk later on, and I had a nice afternoon nap and did some reading. Our "mi-fi" internet device is working great. It is so convenient being able to park in a beautiful boondocking spot like this and get on the internet right away.

Whiskey loves the beach!
We went for an evening stroll on a boardwalk around the sand dunes and when we rounded a corner we saw an unexpected sunset. It had been pretty much overcast all day.

We were up just after 7:00am this morning, and it started raining shortly after that. Two hours later, it's still raining. They have a laundromat here, so we'll go do some rainy day laundry and then we'll probably drive on. Hopefully it will clear up enough to go for a walk. Temperature is expected to be a high of 16C (61F) today.
