Rouses Point, NY

This was our last stop before crossing the border into Canada.  We arrived here on Thursday, July 9 for three nights.

Rouses Point is really just a small village but it definitely has its charm.  It’s only one mile from the Canadian border at the corner of New York, Vermont and Quebec.   Gaines Marina, where we are staying, is attractive, efficient, and well-appointed.  Ninety-nine percent of the people who keep boats here are from Quebec so everyone speaks French  and they are very friendly. 


The weather has been ideal – sunny with temps in the high 70’s to low 80’s during the day and very little humidity.  We’ve   spent most of the time on the boat cleaning, repairing, re-arranging, and doing laundry. We’ve used Rouses Point to prepare ourselves for crossing the border and for the guests we’ll be having for 10 days.  Steve and Cathy from Sacramento will be joining us from Montreal to Quebec City.  We’re looking forward to their arrival!

Jonny gave Lynn a break from cooking by preparing two delicious dinners which we enjoyed on the aft deck while watching beautiful sunsets. 

Please note:  We will have more limited communication capabilities while we are in Canada.  Our access to the internet will be limited to marinas that have WIFI.  We request that those who wish to contact us do so by text as we’ll have unlimited text capability.  We have a limited voice plan so our phone conversations will be very short and we won’t have voice mail capability.  Whenever we have WIFI, we’ll check our email and respond as best we can.  Thanks for your understanding.
