New England here we come!
We left the C&D Canal yesterday at 5 a.m. and in 3 hours and 21 minutes, according to the GPS we will be tying up at Block Island on our friend Beth's mooring. So kind of her to offer it. Thanks Beth, we really, really appreciate it! The overnight was uneventful, no wind, so a motorboat ride. John prefers a good fast sail, but given the distance, I like a flat, albeit noisy, consistent trip. Our tentative plan will be to sleep tonight, have fun on Block tomorrow, which includes visiting our great friend Kyra, and then traveling on to Padanaram on Monday. We have to have a couple of repairs done to Zusammen, so we may detour to Newport first, but that is yet to be decided.
