Boston to Marblehead

Short run today up to M'head to resolve a starter issue with the diesel. Spent a pleasant day walking around in the old town recalling fond memories of our early married life here. Visited Crocker Park, a special place for us with a view of the harbor filled with 1600 boats, one of the largest aggregations of sailboats in the world. (See photo)

Marblehead Visit

Just one more memory of our visit in Marblehead and proof that we really did make this trip together.

Sandwich to Boston

The crew paid some dues today. Visibility immediately after leaving the Cape Cod Canal shut down to 100-200- feet and remained such for most of the trip up to Boston. Thank heavens for reliable radar and Marie's keen eyes. We did get a break on the way into Boston where we were able to see half mile or better. We treated ourselves to one more night at Boston Yacht Haven and a fine dinner out. Well earned after a long 7 hour battle with the fog. Sorry no photos today ..but you know what fog looks like!

Cuttyhunk to Sandwich

Qiuck and easy trip up from Cutthunk and through the Cape Cod Canal to the Sandwich Marina in the the Harbor of Refuge just inside the east entrance.

As you can see from the photo, we weren't alone in our transit. You can see the tug's tower just above the barge 's hull as he pushes it along.

Fishers Island to Cuttyhunk

Got off early and spent 7 hours in 4-6' quartering seas as we crossed Block Island sound. No wind today either. Cuttyhunk was awelcome sight when it finally emerged out of the glop.

We were amazed to find ourselves in the middle of some kind of sailboat rendezvous with more than eighty boats jammed into Cuttyhunk harbor. Very orderly and civil however.

At Fishers Island

Spent a delightful day just hanging out and catching up on some reading. Fishers is a beautiful and quite spot. We were treated to a marvelous sunset.
