The canal is about eight nautical miles long is with a favourable current of 3knts we went through fast. Once out the other side into Cape Cod Bay Brec hoisted the Genoa, but as the wind was light from behind we kept the motor on. Later in the day when the wind and the course allowed he hoisted the main as well and polled the Genoa out on the other side so we sailed wing on wing and were able to turn the motor off!
It was a low ceiling bar, dark and loud with cracked tables. Brec had his beer while Sandy and our BBF had a G+T. Satisfied we now followed Brec around town while he told us some of the history and of his time here in the 60’s. It is now a holiday town, in the 60’s it was a fishermen’s town. The folks walking the streets were very colourful to say the least. Brec explained that it had become not just a Hippy place but one for gays!
The humans bought some beer then went back to the boat so that Alan could cook the evening meal. He said it wasn’t cooking really as he had made the bolognese and froze it before coming, so it was boiling water for pasta and warming up the bolognese. It was all washed down with red wine. Then as these humans seem to do they sit looking at their mobile phone screens before going to bed. Brec said, no move before 07:00hrs. Alan promised us all pancakes and real coffee for breakfast. The humans were asleep as soon as their heads hit the pillows.
