On a calm day earlier in August, before Irene blew up our way, my husband and I took our boat to Cuttyhunk Island. It’s only an hour ride from Woods Hole to this little gem at the end of the chain of Elizabeth Islands. In the harbor, we met up with our friends Ben and Julie and they rafted their sail boat up to our boat.
We took our dingy to shore, walked around the town and passed the public library.
We had a lobster dinner.
And walked back down to the dock to take our dingy back to our mooring.
On the way, we passed acorn stand in a golf cart which operated on the honor system .
As the sun went down and the moon came up, we returned to our boat and spent a peaceful night on our boat in Cuttyhunk harbor.
