This weekend, we went out in our motor boat and took an early evening tour of the local area. We left Great Harbor in Woods Hole and cruised through Woods Hole Passage to Hadley’s Harbor on Naushon Island.
Some summer people are starting to arrive, but it’s still quiet. It’s still too cold to go swimming! We cruised along the shore of Buzzard’s Bay.
We came back to the Woods Hole Yacht Club. In a month, the dinghy lines will all be full.
Across the street from the yacht club are some great houses on Bar Neck Rd.
My family rented this house with the red door, when I was about 6 years old.
The Woods Hole May Festival, which my mother started about 40 years ago, was on Saturday at the ball park. It’s a chance for the year ’rounders to come out of hibernation and socialize. Here’s my cousin showing his ’38 John Deere tractor, which he and his father put together from old parts.
And there’s always a May Pole dance with live music. Summer has almost begun!
