Falmouth, MA to Cuttyhunk

Because Pat has symptoms of food-borne illness, we are heading directly for their home in Falmouth instead of the planned trip to Martha's Vineyard.  It was good to follow Joe's boat, since he has local knowledge of the area.  As soon as we left, we were in fog for at least an hour.  Visibility was limited to about 100 yards, so we stayed close to "Glory Days".   There were quite a few Sunday cruisers when we arrived at the entrance to Joe's harbor.  We wound our way back to the river where Joe's house is located and tied up to his dock.  Joe & Pat have a beautiful home which Joe build several years ago

While Pat rested, Joe took us on an extensive tour of the area.  One of the places we stopped was Quissett Marina where our Nordic Tug group was spending the night.  We knew we would not see them, but wanted to point out their boats for Joe.  As we approached the dock, Judy and Warren were just exiting their dinghy.  Serendipity!  We were able to say a personal goodbye to them, which we had not done when we left the group. 

After the tour, Joe took us to the new homeowners' association clubhouse where we enjoyed a nice dinner. 

Pat and Joe invited the guys (with whom Joe traveled on the gulf when we first met) and their significant others to a cocktail party.  We had spent a couple of weeks with them from Gulf Shores, to Appalachiacola, to Carrabelle, to Clearwater, so it was great to see them again and meet their spouses.  What a nice evening!

Woo Hoo!  Got my hair cut when Pat went to have her nails done.  This was one of the discount franchises where you pay $13.95.  What a bargain!!  Tonight we plan to take our hosts out to dinner before our departure in the morning for Cuttyhunk.  Tomorrow is their anniversary, and they may head for Cuttyhunk, as well.  From there we will be in Mystic Seaport, Essex and back up the Hudson to NJ.

We spent a wonderful day relaxing and walking around the island.  The sunsest was beautiful.

We will miss Pat and Joe.
