Newburyport, MA

We arrived at Newburyport at 1753, a 10 hour cruise day. Jared did some passive sea leg acquisition on the pilot berth, taking advantage of Molly’s tutelage, since she is an accomplished cruising dog, and rarely experiences any adverse reactions to even the roughest seas. They pretty much missed New Hampshire.

Our relatively late arrival didn’t leave much time for sightseeing, although we did manage to get an evening stroll through part of the town and more the following morning. We tied up at the municipal marina, a floating face dock on the waterfront. There are many boats in the harbor, and although our stay was very calm, I imagine it would be quite busy during the peak season. As it is, the New England boating season appears to be drawing to a fast close! Not much activity, few boats on the water. Newburyport is a very interesting town, lots of historic architecture and interesting shops.

We slipped the lines the following morning at 0800, bound for Provincetown on Cape Cod.

    No worries, he’s being a great crew, and fighting the boredom that comes with time at sea… actually, I don’t think boredom’s an issue. I’m enjoying having him aboard, and he’s learning lots of new salty vocabulary!!
