Necessity is in Boston

We came here from Martha's Vineyard. No rich and famous to be seen, but we did get some very good Clam Chowder. Martha's Vineyard is a picturesque Island with a good anchorage. To get around we rented bikes and got some exercise as part of the deal. A good stop, although not a very long one. Lise was on her way home so we needed to get to Boston. This took us through the Cape Cod Canal which is very conveniently located. The Cape Cod area is otherwise quite challenging due to the shallows, winds and currents. Now we just had to time the 4 knots current running through the canal.
Necessity as moored in central Boston outside the Waterboat Marina, whence the lack of pontoon next to the boat. Yesterday was lobster day, and there is definitely no better place to enjoy such a meal. The entire area is literally littered with lobster pots. If you are not careful the propeller will catch a lobster pot for you. That did not happen, so this time we had to pay for our meal. It was truly delicious, and a good send off for Lise.
By now Lise has taken the bus to New York from where she will fly home to Norway. Necessity is somewhat empty without her. She will be missed, and not only because we will have to do the cooking ourselves.
