Upon arrival to Gloucester we were informed that the inner harbor moorings were taken (we neglected to contact the Gloucester Harbor Master in advance to reserve a mooring, which is recommended) but we were able to get one of several available orange ball visitor moorings off Ten Pound Island in the outer harbor. Rental moorings are $25/night.
Next stop, downtown Boston…

With the last of the newly varnished floorboards laid, my captain and I refueled at Rockport Marine and then set sail with a suitable breeze for heading south. It was a rare day of sunshine, no fog and favorable wind so we decided to sail through the night towards our New Hampshire destination.

I didn’t have the privilege of staying at the inn or swimming in the infinity pool, but I did enjoy multiple visits to this beautiful property. I discovered their 4-6 daily happy hour and although often restricted to seltzer water (designated driver), I was smitten with the lounge.
Rain or shine I enjoyed taking the scenic footpath through the woods to the restaurant and lounge building where Adirondack chairs and patio dining await at the water’s edge or a wood burning fireplace beckons you inside. The happy hour specials alone are worth going out of your way and the view is mesmerizing. This is a place where special memories are made!
Inside scoop: The Inn at Ocean’s Edge recently received approval to build a 200ft dock for transient yachts.

Tip: Moving vans and trucks are typically more expensive to rent at the end or the beginning of a month because this is when most people move. Supply and demand.
The interior varnishing project continues…
