Montague to … Montague

We spent the first night at Montague anchored on the north side of the park. I have never seen so many boats inside the harbor. I guess it was a combination of the holiday weekend and the great weather. We moved to a mooring buoy in the park for the second night.

We’ve been toying with the idea of getting kayaks for the boat. Something to toddle around in that is a bit more peaceful than the inflatable and outboard. We rented a couple of kayaks at the Montague marina and paddled around the bay for a couple of hours. It was fun. I was surprised a how tippy the kayaks were. Must be my high center of gravity. 

In the evening, it was time to head for the pub bus. We motored over to the dingy dock and walked to the park entrance to wait for the bus.


The bus arrived right on time. Of course it only makes one or two stops, so the schedule is probably pretty easy to keep.

Tommy Transit was our driver. Music, comedy, and entertainment on the way to the pub. Tommy can tell jokes, play the drums, and drive the bus all at the same time. Luckily, we arrived safely at the Hummingbird Pub.

After a nice dinner and a couple of beers, it was time to head back to the boat. Just in time for sunset.

  1. Since we purchased our kayaks several years ago, we rarely use the dinghy just to go ashore. It is much easier to toss in the kayaks. When we deploy a stern tie I always do so from a kayak while my wife stays at the helm to maneuver the boat. It is much quicker for us that way. My dinghy is stowed on the aft cabin with the kayaks on top of it. Since your dinghy is on the swim step, you have the aft cabin top available for kayaks.
