Cruising Long Island Sound
If you''re planning to hit Black Rock, the Black Rock Yacht Club has a pool (and tennis courts) that might be entertaining. Their restaurant is respectable as well. It''s a short walk (10-12 min along tree-lined streets) to the main drag, with shops, delis, restaurants, and two 9-screen movie houses. Captains Cove offers MUCH better weather protection and has slips instead of moorings. The "Clam Shack"? there is mostly fried stuff. The Cove often has bands at the upstairs bar on weekends. There are a few shops along their docks, but to get anywhere else (if you want to) would require a taxi. Both places are very friendly. The weather may be the determining factor for you.
