- 2019 Summer Voyage
This morning we hauled back the anchor and began our short trip to Woods Hole, MA. Without much breeze, we decided to use the engine for the 12nm voyage. John smoothly steered Geronimo through a tricky channel into Woods Hole Harbor.
Ashore, we visited Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) marine exhibits, and had the opportunity to learn about the submarine exploration vessel, Alvin. Students ate ice cream and checked out town during free time before returning to Geronimo.
We’ve since moved the vessel to Hadley Harbor, tonight’s anchorage. Christian brought us through the harbor’s narrow opening and convinced me to keep going to the inner harbor further back. I’m glad he did; this is a tranquil spot.
Everyone enjoyed an afternoon swim in warm water. Ashley and Elizabeth are in the galley making dinner and dessert. The girls have exceeded expectations, making cupcakes from scratch for dessert.
Most of tomorrow will be spent underway as we head back to Narragansett Bay.
