After 2 weeks of ‘being on’ as organizers of the OCC’s Southern New England Cruise, it was nice to have a quiet weekend among friends.
We took advantage of an early start, and sailed down to Cuttyhunk on Friday afternoon, against a light wind and anchored on the outside alongside Mike and Jane in Jamin. Just as we arrived, a group of seals welcomed us into the harbor.
On Saturday, Peter and Diane aboard Elixir showed up too – opting for one of the outside moorings.
We had a really relaxing weekend sitting on the beach and watching crazy cows also enjoying the beach! We enjoyed a bit of a pot luck dinner (and too many drinks) aboard Elixir on Saturday night.
Sunday was beautiful, so we walked to the top of the hill and back – then Mike bought us ice cream! As we were leaving in the dingy, Laurie suddenly recognized Nancy Tripp in another dingy that was just arriving. We had house sat for Nancy and her late husband a couple of years ago so it was nice to catch up with her again.
We had a nice down-wind sail back to Mattapoisett in the heat of the day – and then opted to stay aboard for the night as our non-air-conditioned apartment was likely untenable! So we did a few chores and made our return early on Monday morning.
