Boat Ride On The CG36500!

Having delivered Santa to the Chatham Fish Pier, Captain Don St Pierre had to return the CG36500 to its docking in Meeting House Pond, Orleans…and I was fortunately invited to go along for the ride.  Winding our way through Pleasant Bay the hour plus cruise on the 36′ famous rescue boat was an incredible experience.  There were six of us on board this calm, beautiful, cool  day…I cannot image 36 people crammed into the same vessel in incredibly rough, stormy, and chilling seas!   If you have not read the book or  seen the movie “The Finest Hours” you need to just for that experience.  The CG36500 has been faithfully restored and worth reading about and visiting.

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown.  As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis.  Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
