Captain’s log Day 19 Saturday June 13th 2015
Found a wonderful anchorage right off Newport Inlet. Fisher Island, 9 miles long, I hid in the cove for the night.
10 hour day 80 miles. My friends were supposed to meet me in Newport, RI, but that did not happen. This is the last thing I saw before lights out.
I been getting a lot of response about my wild and crazy long hair, here is a before and after picture the last one being me with it slicked back. So there.
After 11 hours, and 80 miles, I made it to the mouth of the Cape Cod canal. I’m not going through for many reasons, here are just a few: Fatigue has set in, and I’m seeing all types of things that do not exist. It is late, and I may not find an anchorage on the other side. The tide is wrong, tomorrow I can catch the flood tide at 8:00am. And lastly, I have a wonderful anchorage for the night in Onset Bay, 5 minutes from the cross over from New Bedford to the east side of Cape Cod. I’m 50 miles from my dock in Winthrop.
Throughout my cruising Long Island Bay there was a ton of lighthouses along the way here are a few.
Home sweet home tomorrow. Good night Folks.
Captain Bob over and out.
