There are still a lot of hopeful sailors at Arey’s Pond… hoping that the weather will hold up for a few more good sails this fall before their boats are retired for the winter. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
You can see the 2 channel markers in the first photo, red and green. As you motor out through the river toward the bay, the 2nd photograph is what you will see. So pretty and so peaceful…
With the calm waters and beautiful reflections, this was such a pretty photograph at Arey’s Pond. So many blue tones…
Arey’s Pond is so pretty that we stopped for a couple of photos on the way to the boatyard. I loved the dinghy on the side of the pond at with all of the sailboats in the background. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
This 2nd photo was a pano that Phil took of Arey’s Pond from the same place that I took mine. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
Arey’s Pond in Orleans is a picturesque little pond that houses many sailboats on Cape Cod. It is easy access to the river and out to Little Pleasant Bay and Big Pleasant Bay.
We love to stop by Arey’s Pond Boat Yard and just look… their signature Catboat is just beautiful, as many of them are tied up at the dock or moored out in Arey’s Pond.
As we were leaving, I turned around to get one last photograph. I thought the colors and the composition were just beautiful. What do you think?
There are no boats at Arey’s Pond yet, but in a few weeks there will be much activity, assembling and launching their world-renowned and popular Catboats. I took this photograph from across the pond looking at the boathouse. It will be fun to watch their Catboat fleet grow this spring as the pond fills up with boats of all sizes.
If you’ve never seen a Catboat, they are pretty cool. Google areyspondboatyard.com and you can learn a lot! Arey’s Pond Boat Yard is known for its exemplary workmanship and the elegance of their boats. It is amazing just to read their history!
