Daves-Catamaran

Day 60 Gale Begins

Please join me for Monday Live 7pm EDT on my FB and YouTube channels! Here’s an update from my first mate’s log. While on shore yesterday we made the acquaintance of Dave, an extreme-surfer who invited us for dinner in his catamaran. We were enthralled by his stories of surfing in hurricane Katrina’s 30 foot […]

Day 59 Little Lady in Menemsha

Yesterday we saw some of the most picturesque of villages, the fishing huts lining the docks in Menemsha. This is the same village that appears in the opening scene of Jaws. The poison ivy growing up the sides of neglected fishing huts don’t take away from the painting-like charm of the community, still actively unloading […]

Harpswell

Day 51 Harpswell Visit

We upped anchor and left Boothbay, sailing to the bottom of Harpswell Neck, and then dropped the sails to motor up the long channel. We were met by a  small motorboat . It was  Frank, who had helped us a couple weeks ago with the important props in Bryan’s vignette film. (I am not yet […]

Day 50 Surprise Scotch

As we await hurricane Ida, I recollect Henri from last week. Coincidentally Bryan’s parents’ names. He jests that they have come back to chase him around again. Here is the next entry from my First Mate’s Log. Fortunately what once was hurricane Henri has now fizzled into barely a whisper as it passed over us. […]

Day 49 Cloudburst Awaiting Storm

We had planned to be at Boothbay Harbor only a day or two but hurricane Elsa has been making tracks up the coast and we want to be securely on a mooring should the winds be strong. This is already the fourth day here, so we will pay the harbormaster for yet another day on […]

Day 48 Around the Campfire

Bryan connected with fellow boaters John and Deb Rapp, a couple he had met in harbor at Cuttyhunk a couple years ago. They were traveling by land and happened to be not far away so arranged to pick us up to share an outdoor dinner with new friends of theirs. It was at the home […]

Day 47 Making Crepes at Bob & Peggy’s

We offered, or should I say Bryan offered my services to make crepes de blé noir from our Acoustic Chef book for everyone. I had many sou-chefs and each chose their customization. The first one was rather disastrous until I found the right temperature on their ultra-hot electric stove. Then they got progressively more presentable. […]

Boothbay-Harbor

Day 46 Boothbay Harbor

We left the mooring near Allen Island towards Boothbay Harbor. There we had arranged to meet Bob Krist, Bryan’s friend and former boss in his early years of doing commercial photography. When we rowed to shore Bob was at the dock to meet us. He and Peggy have a condo overlooking Carousel Marina where we […]
