I loved this photograph of these two sailors coming back in after a day of sailing with the fall landscape and pretty clouds in the background. They had a great day sailing with a very brisk wind.
So pretty, don’t you think?
This Sunfish is ready and waiting for the tide to come in a bit so it can go for a sail at Wellfleet Harbor. I loved the vibrant colors of the sail against the deep blue water and the interesting cloud formations in the sky.
What do you think?
We were driving down a one-way dirt road in Orleans the other day looking for a hiking trail from the Orleans Walking Trail Guide when we came across this gem, Arey’s Pond Boat Yard. It looked like an old boat yard from the 1950’s with their own sailing school nearby. We got out of the car and walked around. What a cool place.
We learned that Arey’s Boat Yard has been in existence for 60+ years. Wow! It was fun to learn about their famous Arey’s Catboat and take some photographs. Arey’s Pond is filled with many different kinds of sailboats, motor boats and dinghies. It obviously gets a lot of use as it empties into the Namequoit River and then out to Pleasant Bay.
I found this on their their web site: “Arey’s Pond Boat Yard is the builder of the world renowned APBY catboats. We offer a complete line of catboats, built right at our boat yard, including the 12′ Kitten, the popular 14′ Catboat, the 16′ Lynx and the 20′ Cruising Catboat. We also build a beautiful 20′ Power Launch, restore many wooden craft and, our latest project, the 18′ Arey’s Pond Daysailer.”
What an incredible place, like a diamond in the rough!
Usually when I go biking at 6:00 am I rarely see anyone, but this particular morning there was someone who had just launched their Sunfish at Boat Meadow Beach.
What a spectacular way to start the day! An early morning sail…
What fun! And it look so peaceful.
