Rock and Roll

On Thursday night, after leaving our friend at shore, we decided we would spend the  night on anchor at north beach, rather than return to our slip at the Burlington Boathouse, as we thought it would be more peaceful. We were mistaken, as after lying down, these huge regular rolling waves came in from the west, across the lake. Unfortunately, the winds were out of the NE, and we were pretty much perpendicular to the waves. So we rocked and rolled very noisily a good part of the night. Finally around 5 am things calmed down and we caught a nap.

Yesterday John Brawley, of Sweet Sound Oysters in Duxbury, MA came by to see the boat and he left us some oysters later. I was obliged to run into town on the bike to buy an oyster knife. The oysters were plump, juicy, delicious.

There are some state troopers out today on boats giving tickets. I have no idea what they are serving them up for.Boaters beware.

Here are some photos from yesterday and then this morning. For our friends in Burlington, we will be here until at least Friday morning, so please let us know if you want to visit. Enjoy the photos.
