September 27, 2013  Day 128  
Sandwich Marina
Sandwich, Massachusetts

From Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”
“It’s opener, out there, in the wide open air.”

We experienced the wide open air today for almost eight hours as we made our way to Sandwich, MA.  We immediately faced three foot seas under an overcast sky.  Eventually, the sun came out, but unfortunately, the waves picked up also and then we had three to five footers that were fairly close together. 
It was an exhausting, uncomfortable day and we were happy to reach our destination and get tied up at a marina. The Sandwich Marina is just inside the entrance to the Cape Cod Canal (through which we will travel tomorrow). Bill washed the salt off the boat as soon as we docked. A bright note- we saw Gold Loopers (Potest Fieri and Jejuda) here.

We walked to the Pilot House Restaurant/Aqua Grille next to the marina for a quick dinner. They had an extensive seafood menu but all we truly wanted was a good hamburger, and we were not disappointed.

We plan to go to Newport, Rhode Island tomorrow and spend one night.

(We have no pictures today – hopefully tomorrow!)
