"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

July 14 - Martha's Vineyard, MA

Lake Tashmoo - Anchorage

I woke up to something shining in my eyes...even through the light fog it looked wonderful. Unfortunately it became very foggy as early morning came on. The sun rises here about 5:30 and by 7:00 when we wanted to leave we could hardly see the boats moored around us, so we had to just wait. By 8:00 it was still foggy but beginning to lift, so we dropped our mooring, said good-bye to Ted and Sally and headed to Martha's Vineyard. By 9:00 the sun was out and the sea was very comfortable. It was a great day for our 50 mile cruise to the Vineyard. We are now anchored in a small lake (bay) on the northeast side of the island near Vineyard Haven. The water coming in was just beautiful, so clear and different shades of blue depending on the depth. There were a lot of people out enjoying this beautiful Sunday afternoon.

After we anchored I went for a swim...Stan put on his swimsuit, but wasn't brave enough to get in. The water really wasn't that cold and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think Stan might have gone swimming but he knew he had work to get to. We noticed last night we had a breaker that wasn't working, so he had to change it out. Not a very hard job, but like anything else on a boat, space makes things more complicated and time consuming. We could have gone ashore and spent the evening looking around, but we enjoyed a quiet night on the boat and even went to bed early. We'll explore tomorrow.
