I love to walk the docks in Provincetown and see all of the gorgeous sailboats. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I took this photograph a few weeks ago when there were still quite a few sailboats docked in the harbor. Aren’t they just gorgeous?
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…
The reflections of the sailboats and their tall masts were just beautiful the other morning. There wasn’t a ripple in the water. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
So pretty, don’t you think? Which one do you like better?
I saw this Catboat’s name and it brought a smile to my face. What a cool name for a Catboat, don’t you think?
We hadn’t been to the Orleans Yacht Club since early spring so we were surprised to see this new dock filled with boats. The sailing must be good on Town Cove.
I loved this photograph as it was a stormy day and the clouds were black and thick. What do you think?
Yesterday was Arey’s Pond Annual Cat Gathering in Pleasant Bay. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
The Cat Gathering is one of the largest gatherings of catboats on the East Coast. Catboats and other classic wooden boats are invited to participate in this just-for-fun regatta through Little Pleasant Bay, into Pleasant Bay and back.
It was a perfect day with a good wind and sunny skies and lots of catboats out in the bay. I counted about 90 boats in Pleasant Bay! Wow! It was quite a sight to see!
