Very neat.....I guess it'll take a while for anyone to trace that voyage!
I liked your comment about the Sakonnet:
"we rolled out the sails and had a glorious sail up the Sakonnet. The Sakonnet is one of the prettiest rivers that I've ever sailed on. It's relatively unspoiled with condominiums or industry and in some areas you have old homes perched atop hills with huge lawns gracefully rolling down to the water's edge. I've often said that I would love to live there."
We have a cottage on one of those hills on the Portsmouth side....I think it is a well kept secret. Even in the summer, it is rare to see more than one or two boats sailing up the Sakonnet.
Of course, even though is is named "river", it is a tidal strait.
Hey, if you want to live there, you can get some good deals these days...relatively, anyway...
These two pics were taken in Oct and Nov.
