We have to motor the whole way, the monotony was relieved by searching the horizon for whales as we passed over Stellwaggon Bank, a renowned whale feeding ground. Then the fog set in. . . .for 5 hours we watched the radar overlayed on the chart plotter, our attention only disturbed by announcements from the US coast guard every 30 minutes, informing us to keep a sharp look out for a barge adrift in the area of Stellwagon Bank. . . .
Fortunately Province Town has a very large and well sheltered anchorage, as we arrive at 3am miraculously avoiding the odd fishing float, we drop the anchor and hope we don't wake up to a very close neighbour!
