The kids are happy to be back on the Block!  We motored over in light southerlies with an nasty-ish slop that caused some mal-de-mer for at least one of our crew, but that’s all forgotten now that we are happily settled on a mooring and everyone has been ashore to check out the local scene.

We got in after a four-hour and 45-minute run from New England Boatworks.  Grey skies, humid, light southerlies and no rain.  The town moorings were all taken, but both CCA moorings were available so we snagged one and hoisted our burgee to the masthead.  There is lots of room (for now) at the three marinas, and plenty of space to drop a hook in the anchorage (also for now).

Looking forward to relaxing for a few days on “island time”, and watching the Fourth of July madness.
