We spent Friday, August 12 in  Woods Hole, MA.  As you may know, Woods Hole is one of the centers of marine research in the world. There are at least 4 different organizations here in this one tiny town.  Actually Woods Hole is a section of Falmouth, which has 14 harbors in the Town of Falmouth.

We were able to get a mooring ball at the Woods Hole Yacht Club for only $40.  After tieing up we dinghied over the Club looking for Skip, the dockmaster. He was not there but we me Ted Everett who wrote us out a receipt. 

Started walking to town, Joy's right knee started giving her trouble.She thinks she hyper extended it the other day. So we walked back to the dinghy, motored to High Spirits, and got the knee brace that her mother used to wear.

Then we took the dinghy directly into town and tied up at the town dock and found a very nice and not too expensive restaurant.  Joy had here lobster bake with clams, lobster, mussels, and corn on the cob.
I had brie cheese with pears, and caprese salad.

We left Woods Hole at noon today to ride the tide down to Newport.  We had a nice talk with Skip, the dockmaster at Woods Hole Yacht Club.  He is a newcomer to Woods Hole, only fourth generation.  Some families go way back.

Arrived in Newport at 6:30 pm.  Found our mooring and cooking dinner.  Joy talked to Candace Keefe, her friend from high school who lives here.  We may be able see them tomorrow.
