We had a tight window. We landed at 1.30pm on July 2nd, and needed to leave at 5am July 3rd for Osterville, MA. Everything was perfect. In fact, we had 98% battery power, running freezer and fridge - with solar panels. That was a huge sigh of relief. We'd never been away from Field Trip for more than 3-4 days. Everything worked great - we were off to Osterville!

While we were in Tortola, BVI for the Atlantic Cup, I recognized the last name of the skipper for Comocean. I knocked on the hull and asked the skipper if he was related to Seth. Yep!, Toby (skipper) was his father. WOW. Small world when I told him we'd followed Seth and Elizabeth aboard Honeymoon. He beamed, I smiled and we chatted. After our sail to Bermuda, Toby invited us to visit his family during July 4th for a 'special time' - and we did. It was a blast. Fun to meet the Honeymoon crew, talk sailing, have our kids play together and enjoy the festivities. Thanks Toby, JoAnne, Seth & Elizabeth for a great time! We hope to see you soon on the water.

After visiting Osterville, we sailed to Nantucket, and spent two great days seeing the island, eating good food & enjoying the nice kid's beach. The highlight of the trip was the famous Whale museum. It is a must see and was excellent. One of the best museum's we've ever visited.
We're now off to Martha's Vinyard, see friends in Mattapoisett, MA and then 10 days in Boston's Inner Harbor.
