We love Cape Cod!

Hello to all!
We had a nice stay in beautiful Redbrook Harbor and enjoyed a nice lunch with Gene and Christine. Christine had packed us a bottle of Fume Blanc which we had with the last 4 filets of Blk Sea Bass caught on lobster traps at Cutty Hunk.
Fantastic fish!
Monday we sailed on to Onset Bay . How nice it was without the weekenders on the water!
Onset is lovely with onset island and Wicket Island both are tall clumping islands with thick vegetation and traditional cottages. From the town park high on a hill you get the best view of the beaches sweeping the shore in every cove, the islands and moored boats below! Every bit as pretty as most of Martha's Vineyd!
Great gluten free food at The fresh Food Cafe where Michelle gave me a few tips.
We received mail from home and our dear friend, Jim Matthews sent us a pkg from Beneteau!
After 2 great days at anchor, we pulled up anchor at 0630 this morning and motored out the winding channel and entered the cape cod canal with favorable current. At 1800 rpm we made 9.5 knots of boat speed- 4 knots of which were current!

And now after exiting the canal at 0745 we are under full sail no engine with 13 knots of wind in route for Provincetown!Glorious!! We visited here once before with Sandra and Inge Holman 15 years ago. Sunny and clear!

We are watching for right whales . Just heard someone on radio who is tagging whales.
