Mayflower, Day by Day - Friday, 4 December 1620

At anchor in harbour

Continues cold and stormy.  While Long Point provides a natural barrier to protect Provincetown and its harbour from many storm hazards, the point bears the brunt of such a storm when it does so: this sickle of sand which encloses the harbour was so narrow that encroaching storms played havoc with it and threatened at one time to sweep the narrow point away.  More discussions among the passengers, trying to formulate a plan to settle.  As the Semisonic song (and plenty of other references) repeats: “You don’t have to go home, but you can’t … stay … here.”
