BLOCK ISLAND

My most recent post was in Re: Old harbor, the smallish harbor near the center of town where the ferry lets you off.

I''ve never stayed in Old Harbor, it doesn''t look terribly comfortable or accessible. Of course the last couple of times I''ve seen it have been with a prevailing N/NE wind, which is less common around here. With a S/SW wind it would appear to be very protected.

We''ve stayed in New Harbor, both at Champlin''s and at anchor. In spite of a longish dinghy ride and a neighbor with a lot less scope out than us, we much preferred being at anchor.
