September 5, 2018 Cuttyhunk and Portalnd Pudgy

We took the dinghy in to shore this morning.  There was a small sandwich and donut shop on the dock.  We each had a breakfast sandwich, coffee, and shared 2 donuts.  We had the feeling they had been frozen, not fresh made.  But it was a treat, none the less.  We shared the only table with shade with another boater.  We sat and visited with him for most of the morning.  Hinkley Yachts said Friday is a go.  And that works for our surveyor, too.  Yippee!!  Dave called Fairhaven Shipyard and cancelled the haul out with them.
Haven't been up to catch the sunrise in awhile

That afternoon, we took our Portland Pudgy, Skadoosh, to shore for a day at the beach.  It is the first time I have been in the water this summer.  Dave has dove the hull, but not just relaxed like this.  The water was cold, but we enjoyed it.  We had perfect wind to sail directly back to the boat.   Dave let me off at the stern.  Then he had to go around our other dinghy and along side the boat to take the sail off and load it back on the bow.  When he rounded to the side of the boat, the nose of Skadoosh was directly into the wind, and he couldn’t sail along side the boat.  It took him about 30 minutes to zigzag across the bay and get back to our boat.

come on in, the water's fine

this is the channel between Cuttyhunk and Nashawena Island.  the land in the distance is Martha's Vinyard
For dinner, we made pizza using our bread dough recipe for the dough.  Not a good choice.  It was too think and ended up like a “brick” oven pizza.  We could use a good pizza dough recipe.
