We were up this morning before the alarm went off. Heard some lobster boats going out. Mike uploaded another blog and we got ready to leave right after breakfast. If we hadn’t come in so late in the day and also had the misfortune of snagging a sunken lobster trap, we may have dingied around and enjoyed this place. There is a fourth generation owned Cape Porpoise Lobster Company located right on the pier and The Ramp Bar and Grill has excellent food according to the couple who were going ashore when we were trying to see what our anchor was caught on yesterday. Our guide book says it has a great view of the harbour. And there is a Bradbury Brother’s Market for provisions too.
We motored in to see the harbour and look at the sights. Beautiful in here. Gloucester has had many movies shot here, most notably Captains Courageous and The Perfect Storm. Most of these shots were taken in Smith Cove and the Rocky Neck peninsula.
We found another boat just for you, Sarah, Now you can have one in Prince Edward Island and Massachusetts. And this yacht is a live aboard here. The name is Walrus, from New York, NY. We looked it up and it is a 76 ft. trawler. A beautiful boat. So many boats in here.
We motored back out and got the hook down at 15:30 and we decided to dinghy in for supper later. The sun rays through the clouds were beautiful when we left. We ate at Rudder’s and it was excellent. I had tuna steak and it was so good. We had a waitress with sea blue eyes and she told us she had gone on the Bluenose when it was here a few years back. She also told us her sister met George Clooney when they were filming the Perfect Storm here. She and her husband are dreaming of one day taking off in a boat too.
We walked around a bit and decided we better get back before dark. And the sunset was not too shabby either. We were really surprised how the wind came up an hour later, It was 15-20kn, gusting to 25. We set the anchor alarm.
Today we travelled 51.5 nm.
