Hanging in Block Island on the boat for the 4th of July, we thought a few Bloody Mary’s might be just the thing. Wandering through one of our favorite little shops, The Glass Onion, this one caught Bruce’s eye. I’m generally not a fan of pre-mixed anything, but this stuff is great! We were on a minimalist kind of weekend so we didn’t want to load the boat up with all the fixings, but Ass Over Teakettle doesn’t need anything to perk it up. We drank it as-is, straight out of the bottle (plus vodka, of course), and garnished it with celery, chilled Gulf shrimp and some pepperoni slices we had hanging around.

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.
