42° 49.475' N 70° 53.024' W 08 Jul 2020 00:41 None None None Newburyport. Back at our now former home. Have a mooring at Merri Mar and will do a few boat projects, head to Vermont for a while to visit Amy's family, and then be off to Maine and our new home in Stonington.
42° 36.62' N 70° 39.46' W 05 Jul 2020 19:47 None None None Gloucester. Great stay with Bonnie Rye in Ptown. Much less of a 4th crowd than usual for obvious reasons. Motored to inner harbor with Bonnie Rye although they took a slight detour for a very productive whale watch. Anchored next to U'Jamn, good friends from Merri Mar who we have not seen for several years. Will be really good to catch up.
42° 2.69' N 70° 11.18' W 03 Jul 2020 15:47 None None None Ptown. Pleasant evening in Onset with another 5:30am start for Ptown. Needed to catch the tide through the Canal and more importantly avoid the worst of the forecast 20-25 knot winds on our nose. Plan worked great for 2/3 of the way. The last 1/3 was a real motor slog right into the forecast winds and seas. Not fun but could have been much worse. As we entered the mooring field, Bonnie Rye hailed us and welcomed us to Ptown.
41° 44.11' N 70° 39.02' W 02 Jul 2020 18:48 None None None Onset. Had a good visit with one of Amy's old friends at Block Island. Were on our way at 5:30 this morning for Onset. Able to sdail in the afternoon but mostly motoring. Classic 15 knot SW Buzzard's Bay afternoon. Will try to make Ptown tomorrow but, wind direction doesn't look favorable. Could be a long day.
41° 11.629' N 71° 35.012' W 29 Jun 2020 19:19 None None None Salt Pond, Block Island. Motored for all 32 hours from Cape May. Ugh. Nice to be here. Lots of boats but still plenty of room. Forgotten how big the anchorage area is. We'll relax for a couple days then head to Provincetown for the 4th. It was great to have the summer smells of rosa rugosa and warm sand hit us as we came in through the breakwater.
