Moodyâ€™s was only a half hour away from Shawâ€™s Wharf in
The stroll from the ball field to the pier was marked by a reminder of why we love
Next came a flood of memories as this was the first time Kim and I had been back since our wedding day fifteen years ago. The boarding routine quickly came back as we confirmed our reservation, paid for parking (a separate transaction that is cash only since Hardy Boats has an arrangement with the guy who owns the field â€“ its only $3 per day so no biggie) and chatted with the captain and crew.
Shortly we were aboard and out to sea. Plenty of good omens backed the voyage: we were drenched in brilliant sunshine and the water was glass. This was my fifth or sixth time out to Monhegan and the only time when a fellow passenger didnâ€™t get seasick or I didnâ€™t get drenched by a breaking wave while peering over the bow. Guess I should note that getting drenched is the usual dilemma and it isnâ€™t that rough of a ride that you need to worry about getting seasick!
