Another windless day. Arrived this afternoon after motoring in light fog. Tomorrow Onset then Buzzards Bay. Yesterday coming from the Isle of Shoals to Gloucster we had a close encounter with a finback whale. He was cruising slowly on the surface and crossed the bow (port to starboard) at about 10 feet. Any closer and it would have had a red stripe down its side from my bottom paint. Sandy spotted first and we came to a dull stop to let it pass.
We are watching Hurricane Bill closely and are looking at Narraganset Bay as a hiding place.
