Summer Cruise 2011

Dock in Hadley Harbor - Click image to view gallery.
I have put together a gallery of images from our summer cruise. This year we left Pawtuxet Cove in Rhode Island and headed first to Fairhaven, MA. From there it was off to Onset, MA to anchor for the night before heading through the Cape Cod Canal and on to Boston. July 4th we arrived in Boston Harbor as the USS Constitution was finishing her once a year turn around. Missed it by 10 minutes. . . the joy of cruising at 7 knots. We stayed at a marina in Boston and saw the fireworks after a great dinner at the Old Ironsides Grille. On the morning of the 5th we toured the USS Constitution before heading out to Peddock Island, one of the many Boston Harbor Islands. A great night on a free mooring. The following morning we cruised across Massachusetts Bay to Provincetown and picked up a mooring there. Ptown has become such a touristy place that we were happy to leave in the morning even in the fog. We traveled back across the bay to the canal once again and on to Hadley Harbor where we planned to stay the night and ended up staying three nights. This place is just beautiful (see panorama in the post below). And then it was a quick skip home through 4 foot seas and into the flat calm of the bay to end another great cruise. The weather was fine, the food was outstanding the boats performed perfectly, but best of all, the friendship that will live in our hearts forever.
