A cool, sometimes sunny morning resulted in a wonderful, exhilarating sail down Salem Sound. Arrived about 11 and were gobsmacked by the 100s and 100s of boats moored here. The field is so big the yacht club’s tender shows up to lead you to your mooring.

After checking in we took the launch to town and had lunch at Maddie’s which is supposed to be world famous among sailors but none of us had heard of it. After that we wandered around this lovely town with its very well kept up homes from the 1700/1800s most with a small plaque stating the year built, for whom and their occupation.

Returning to the boat we had a relaxing late afternoon and evening in the cockpit despite an early evening thunderstorm going through.
