The CG36500 is the famous Coast Guard boat that was depicted in the Disney movie, The Finest Hours, because of its incredible rescue of 32 crewmen from a sinking ship off of the coast of Cape Cod in 1952.
During the summer you can go on board and see where those 32 crewmen survived. It is worth the trip just to see the boat. If you haven’t watched the movie, put that on your list too! It’s truly amazing!
“Located right by the docks at Rock Harbor in Orleans, MA, Young’s Fish Market is the perfect place to pick up a lobster roll and your fresh fish, fresh lobster or fresh shellfish for lunch or dinner! Walk the flats, check out the charter boats, and stroll over to Young’s for the catch of the day. You won’t find a more quality or picturesque fish and shellfish market on Cape!”
This is so true and one of our favorite places on Cape Cod!
When high tide comes in, the fishing boats go out. This boat was heading out of Rock Harbor very early this morning.
What a gorgeous sight, don’t you agree? Look at those clouds!
The sun was just coming up yesterday morning at Rock Harbor. You can see the boats all settled in at the docks, waiting for the day and all its summer activity to begin.
When it’s low tide on the bay side of Cape Cod, the tide swings are just amazing. It feels like you can walk out for miles. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I was on the Eastham side of Rock Harbor, enjoying a nice walk on the beach when this family on the sandbar caught my eye. They were having such a good time.
And then when I looked back over 5 minutes later, they were gone as was almost the entire sandbar.
