The sailing season at Arey’s Pond Boat Yard is definitely getting shorter as you can see the beautiful masts which have been taken off of the catboats. These will either be put into storage until next spring or taken inside to varnish or repair over the winter.
Arey’s Pond Boat Yard is a one stop boat yard. Their work is second to none and their boats are just gorgeous. They will haul your boat out in the fall, “de-rig” it, and store the boat and everything with it for the winter. They will repair anything needed and then rig it and put it back in the water in the spring for you to enjoy. It doesn’t get any better!
The views from Kent Point in Orleans are so different depending on where you are on the trail. I loved this view from the back of Kent Point looking out on the river toward Meeting House Pond.
The little boathouse and two sailboats… so pretty.
It’s almost time to put the boats away and pull in those moorings until next season. I bet there’s plenty of sailors who will brave the cooler weather and enjoy a few more sails out in beautiful Pleasant Bay.
What a sight to see all of these Cormorants enjoying their time on this Sunfish which was waiting to be taken out for the season. There was even a Cormorant standing on the mooring and more of them just swimming around anxious for that precious space to open up.
All I could think of was that I hope whoever owns this boat brought a big brush to clean it off. Or maybe just flip it over! The Cormorants were loving it!
The weather has been so hot and humid lately that people are flocking to the beach in the evenings when it is a bit cooler and there’s a little breeze. Saturday evening I took a walk to Boat Meadow Beach and and it looked like a summer’s day as a sunfish and 2 stand-up paddle-boarders headed out on the cooler waters.
What a gorgeous view… and look at that sky! Wow! It doesn’t get much prettier!
