Sandwich Marina

This marina, at the northern end of the Cape Cod Canal, is a nice place!

Nice facilities leased to the town of Sandwich by the Army Corps of Engineers. Clean showers, laundry, etc. They use Dockwa for reservations, but I still like the place anyway.
Shellerina at her birth on Dock “C”. I think that is the USCG Station in the background. (Or else it is someone imitating their most common color scheme!)

Two restaurants are right on the basin’s edge, and at least two others are a short walk; the village is 0.4 miles away.

If there is something on your boat that needs repair, just bring your boat up to this bike rack! They have tools you can use.
We actually made a play for Salem MA (50nm) this afternoon, as the forecast winds were showing things calming down out there as the afternoon progressed. However, the actual observed conditions outside the inlet at 2:00pm were still too spirited for us.

So it is two more nights here, and a very early start Wednesday.

[BTW: finally found a NE Clam Chowder that rivals Shell’s!]
Our meals were outstanding! Shelly’s elusive soft shelled steamers were almost impossible to find on our Loop trip. But we are back in beloved New England. This staple is readily accessible!

The basin today, and our position within it.
