Shopping was the treat for the afternoon but we, or I, were saved from that fate by receipt of an email from Richard and Joan Miller on their Willard 40 motor yacht ‘Adria’ who were heading for Scituate about 28 nm and just south of Boston on the route to the Cape Cod Canal.


We met and last saw Richard and Joan during our extended stay in Frenchboro.


So at 1215 we raised a well dug in anchor and headed off to motor sail to Scituate where we took a yacht club mooring, organised by Richard, at 1630.


There followed a very pleasant cocktail hour on ‘Adria’ and courtesy of the yacht club launch a dry trip ashore to an excellent dockside restaurant for dinner.
