We then sailed to Provincetown on the end of Cape Cod to wait out a little wind for a couple of days and then continued on to Sesuit Harbor on Cape Cod to visit my(Paul's) Uncle Mario and Aunt Judy. We stayed with them for two nights and had a great time. It was a real treat to stay at their beautiful home and enjoy their delicious cooking.
After leaving Sesuit Harbor we went through the Cape Cod Canal to Onset and then on to Hadley Harbor just outside Woods Hole, Mass. This is a great free mooring field put in place by the Forbes family for all to enjoy. It's an easy dinghy ride into Woods Hole where we visited the NOAA aquarium, the historical museum, and their library. Hadley Harbor is great for dinghy exploration and one morning I went out fishing and caught my first striped bass.
We then crossed Vineyard sound and anchored in Lake Tashmoo on Martha's Vineyard for a few days. We had a great time in Martha's Vineyard but unfortunately left our camera on a picnic table at the park. That's the second camera we've lost/destroyed.
We are now anchored in Nantucket Harbor and it is beautiful. The weather has been great and we spent yesterday on a deserted beach. Today we are in town at the atheneum (library). From here we will go back to Martha's Vineyard for a night, then onto Wood's Hole, and then onto Newport,RI for Samantha's seventh birthday.
