Re: Advice re: September trip to Block Island and Newport

Showers at the Oar are brand new this year. Totally needed, but great now. The Oar itself should not be missed. You can reference the Block NOAA buoy, but it only gives wave height and period. You should check them all around for a trend, remembering that the buoy system is a current victim of the sequester and are not being maintained, so beware.

I would love to be as helpful as I can. Give me an idea of what you're looking for and I can point you in the right direction. Other than the Oar, right there in New Harbor, Eli's is one of our favs near Old Harbor. Newport has too many to list, narrow me down a bit.
