That was a beautiful travel day. Sunny and calm behind the islands. I threaded my way across to Rockport and anchored here about 4:45. It was almost completely dark by then.
This is a spectacularly beautiful and interesting area. The ten foot tidal range adds to the variety and challenge.
Another little front comes through this evening, then nice again tomorrow. I’m going to head up to Bath.
I thought I’d go ashore here and have a meal out, but that requires getting into the dinghy and it’s cold and dark and getting windy. Think I’m going to stay aboard and have an early night and try to be up for dawn.
I’ve been looking at lobster boats all summer, and I have to say the ones I saw today are my favourites. They all looked good to my eye.
I saw one pleasure boat underway today. I think it’s my first since leaving Chester. Lots of lobster boats out though.
