A visual piece, that is. I think they stopped visitors from chipping off souvenir pieces several years ago.
We can see the "rock" from the boat.
Tonight Laura and her friend Megan have joined us for dinner and we plan on Mexican food at a local eatery.
Tomorrow we will leave for Marion at 8 AM. We will be transiting the Canal in the other direction, returning to Buzzards Bay. Ebb flow west begins at around 1:30 and we will use this favorable current to our advantage.
Predictions are for SE winds at 10-15 with patchy fog. There may be rain later today. The trip to Marion is another long leg of nearly 37 miles.

We are lined up on the face dock at Brewer's. A fairly easy approach and landing, although the entrance channel to Plymouth was quite long, and at several places, quite narrow.

We arose early for the next leg, a rather long 38 miles to Plymouth.
The wind was light and variable, providing little sailing opportunity. We motored the entire way, mostly on autopiot.
One interesting aspect of the trip south was a close up look at the Islands of Boston, as we passed by them.
We arrived in Plymouth around 2PM and docked at Brewer's. This will be a good opportunity to clean up the boats, as they are now quite salt encrusted from over 200 miles of sailing.We also are in need of taking on water which is getting low. We may not have another chance for water before we return to Providence.
