Day 6- Rockport, MA

Spent the morning meandering northeast, hugging the coast in 10-15 knot winds.  Saw many amazing mansions along the coast.  Entered Rockport Harbor about 11:30 am.  Rockport is a small quintessential New England harbor with 10 ft tides.  The harbor is so small that there is no room to anchor, so we requested a mooring.  None were available but we were offered a floating slip, sounded even better.  We pulled up to a small dock at the back of the harbor.  The back end of Borealis was hanging off but we were able to secure her well.  Only to be told that we belonged on the even smaller dock floating in the middle of the harbor.  After tying up in the proper place, it looked like there was a piece of driftwood attached to Borealis.  Really enjoyed walking around Rockport.  We found a beach and the kids took a refreshing dip fully dressed.  Did I mention it is HOT?  The boat thermometer indicates 99 F.  REALLY starting to look forward to Maine.
