Newport, continued

So we wound up spending 3 days on mooring rubbing anchors with 12 meter boats 100 foot Mega yachts and the Newport Folk festival. Not to mention Haleakala swallowed up some indigestible eel grass neccessitating taking apart the impeller, some hoses and strainer. Next years improvement is a Kingston.strainer. There are over 50 top quality restaurants as well as many other good Ones.Every nightts dinghy ride was to find the most outrageous sail and power boat. Today began ourtrip Back. Just passed New London Ct and are stopping in Old Saybrooke instead. Of Essex. Temps in the high 70s with winds 12-15. Doesn't get any better than this. My wife Donna has becomequite the sailor.
