October 15, 2018 Woods Hole, MA

The wind is supposed to really pick up later this afternoon.  So we went into town to check it out and have lunch today.  Woods Hole is very interesting.  It only covers 219 acres but it is the home to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Woods Hole Research Center, Marine Biological Laboratory, the Sea Education Association, the National Marine Fisheries Service and the Atlantic Marine Geology branch of the US Geological Survey.  Many of these places have tours during the summer.  A good reason to come back. 

We stopped a lady on the street and asked her if she was local and where she would recommend having lunch.  She recommended Captain Kidd’s and the Landfall.  We chose Captain Kidd’s which turned out to have a better view of the inner harbor vs the working docks.  Great meal of New England clam chowder and haddock fish sandwich.  Dave had the seafood platter and brought the haddock home.  The shrimp, scallops and clams were enough.

They had my new favorite beer, Cape Cod Red.  I made Dave take a trip to the liquor store to see if they carry it.  It is made in Hyannis, MA, close to here, and I haven’t found it elsewhere.  So we picked up a few cans.  We also thought we should get some Cape Cod potato chips since we were here.  I’m sure we will be able to taste the freshness :)


pretty low clearance, even in a dinghy

 The wind was picking up by the time we headed back to the boat.  Dave fixed the switch for the water maker, heated water, then made water.  With the Honda generator, we can’t heat water and make water at the same time.  But, it is good to shower while the water maker is running to replace that water.  And we want to have dry hair before going to bed since it’s been getting into the 40’s and 50’s at night.
