Day 58- Dutch Harbor, RI

We left Freeport, ME at 11am for a 150 mile passage to MA.  We arrived 25 hours later in Hadley Harbor.  We sailed most of the afternoon but took the sails down when the winds died in the evening.  The sunset was gorgous and the night lit by an almost full moon. Traffic was relatively light, other than a few fishing vessels.  We did hear a Coast Guard notice regarding a 250ft unlit barge adrift in an area that we were transiting.  Luckily we didn't find it.  After a beautiful overnight sail we transited the Cape Cod Canal without incident this time.  (Last time we ended up with a lot water from a power boat wake inside the main cabin.)   Hadley Harbor was busier than we expected. We were hoping that the sailing season would be slowing down here but it doesn't seem so.  No moorings were available in the inner harbor so we anchored in the outer harbor, only to be joined by a boat with folks we met up in Islbororo Maine. Along with the high density of boats and people, we are back in the land of cell phone and internet service.  I have't seen 5 bars in many weeks, maybe months!  After spending a very still night in Buzards Bay, we sailed toward Narragansett Bay today and ended up anchored in Dutch Harbor.
