The Mayfower returns for the season

Each year, the Mayflower2 leaves Plymouth Harbor to spend the winter at a boatyard in Fairhaven. This afternoon, she made her journey back to Plymouth. The above photo is the Mayflower being pulled by a tug through The Cape Cod Canal. The bridge in the background is the Sagamore Bridge.
It feels like we are truly going full circle with the past 365 days. Two more days to go on this project. Do you remember what the photo was on day one? It was the Cape Cod Canal and the Sagamore Bridge. Ironic.
It didn't take her long to whiz past us. The current in the canal was very strong and she cruised past us at a pretty fast speed.
We stopped at Ellisville Harbor State Park on the way home and saw the Mayflower and tug far off in the distance:

My favorite photo from today was not the Mayflower, but this shot that I took at the State Park:

On another note...................

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
