Taking the week to arrive by sailboat to the house concert in Woods Hole, MA. Harbored the storm today in Martha’s Vineyard. It’s been a lovely sail, we saw a dolphin swimming close to the boat, and also a shark. Caught a Gorilla Blue fish that was about half my size. It made some lovely meals – mmm! You can see the video on my youtube page.
In the harbor there was a huge school of Silverside fish spawning, that was so thick that I could reach in the water and have a handful of 2″ size fish. At one point the water was glistening with strings of encapsulated eggs in a jelly like substance.
This is a new adventure for me, the first time arriving by sailboat, and I was introduced at the concert as “the seafaring Muriel Anderson.”
Lots of sights on the way back. Overnighting on the boat was beautiful – so many shooting stars! The moonrise and sunrise over the water was stunning, and watching the fishing rigs pass by in the early morning.
