Goethe Girl goes to Echo Bay

Goethe Girl aboard the Islay Mist
Yesterday we went on an outing by boat to Echo Bay. When we departed Mitchell Bay at 7:30 a.m., the fog was so thick that we had to rely on the GPS for navigation.

 It was, however, a typical morning for this part of the world. By 10, the fog began to burn off.
10 a.m.
But it was a glorious day by the time we reached our destination.

One goes to Echo Bay for the fishing, but also to visit Billy Proctor and his museum. Billy is what is called an inveterate collector, having begun when he was about five years old, to judge by the picture of him below, posted at the entrance to the museum.

As for the contents of this museum, I will let the photos below speak for themselves. Click to enlarge.

Remember the Dionne quints?

And a good time was had by all.
On the lookout for whales
Sighted, but no breaching.
