Day 16 Seguin Island Lighthouse 7/21

I managed to drift back to sleep again after the wakes from several lobster boats set Avocet rocking wildly. We can’t complain too much, the lobster fishermen are suffering a bit as the warming waters are pushing the lobsters into deeper and more northerly waters, and there are ongoing discussions about regulations on traps when […]

12 Hour Sail for Day 12

This is the day we had to cover a lot of miles in order to arrive in time to join Denny Breau and friends for a tribute concert to his brother, guitar icon Lenny Breau the following day. It was Lenny who taught Chet Atkins the harmonic technique that has been the basis for many […]

Day 10 Cape Ann Finns 7/14

It was another still and foggy day, with thunderstorm warnings now being delayed until 7pm—just when I would be finished with my concert! I had offered to play for the Cape Ann Finns, an organization only into their third year. Many of the members were friends or neighbors of my grandfather (sax player & band […]

Day 7 To Gloucester 7/11

Since we purchased a mooring for the previous night in Scituate, we took advantage of the showers in the harbormasters office. Wow, a real shower! It’s such a luxury after our solar showers onboard, drizzling some water from a bag hanging from the mainsail boom. When we called the launch, a boat to bring us […]

Day 6 The Mayflower Tuna 7/10

The morning was calm after the storm, so Bryan and I decided to see a little of Plymouth history. We went to the Plimouth Plantation, not only a recreation of an early Pilgrim village, but with witty people reinacting the characters of the first settlement. I learned so many interesting things about the settlers while […]

Day 5 Storm Elsa 7/9

Day 5 Storm Elsa 7/9

I awoke in the wee hours of the morning to an erie calm and misty pink & gray sky. I drifted off again until I heard the first of the rain coming down. We stayed onboard to await tropical storm Elsa, securely attached to a mooring. We only had a little while of howling winds […]

Day 3 Shipwreck 7/7

We had planned to spend some days seeing the villages around Cuttyhunk, Menemsha, and Woods Hole to visit our friends Paula and David Isenberg, but getting a mooring further north, perhaps Plymouth, seemed to be better protection from tropical storm Elsa, expected to arrive Friday afternoon. We gave ourselves a little R and R time […]

Day 1 Dolphins and Onward to Block Island 7/5

Day 1 We departed on Monday morning, July 5th, after a weekend filled with Bryan’s family, close friends and neighbors who had convened for Bryan’s parents’ memorial service. Over the past few days provisions, guitars, and instruments to give away were rowed out to the sailboat in multiple trips without much organization. We took time […]
