We had some great views of the shoreline as we rounded the Gloucester peninsula. We saw dolphins on the way, but they are impossible to capture on film, at least with my phone. We had pretty flat seas with fog part of the way.

On Star Island, there is an old hotel that is used for retreats and conventions. There was a group there at the time. We were wanting to watch the Alabama football game, so we called the hotel to see if they had a lounge that was open to the public. They didn’t have a bar, but we were welcome to use their lobby. I explained that we were looking for wifi and would be happy to spend some money on their island. They didn’t allow people to use wifi in their lobby, but they had a business center we could use. In the end, I convinced her to give us their wifi password so we cold use our booster and get wifi on the boat. Later we found out that the hotel was owned by the Unitarian church, hence no bar.
