Cape Cod Canal

Tonight we sit in an anchorage just on the west end of the famous Cape Cod Canal, first envisioned in the 1600's as a shortcut around the peninsula and finally finished in 1916. We arrived there from Boston on the east side about 4:00 pm and the current was against us. Half way through it stopped and it was pushing us out the west end. I guess the waves can be over six feet high if the current meets the waves there but I don't want to see that.

Boston was terrific; the Constitution Marina was quiet, close to all the action on the North End and the cheapest place to stay in town. There is so much to do there. Capt. Jeff
