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

Just read you have been to Newport many times and were looking
for a more budget friendly/off the beaten path location.
Maybe a stop for lunch in Newport and then short sail North to Bristol for the night, great town and the Herreshoff Museum/America's Cup Hall of Fame on the water is a spectacular must see.

Not super cheap but the Clark Good House and the Landing are usually decent and easy to get to. Last time I was at the landing there was a reallly good band and were people tying dingys next to the bar.

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

One of my fav local Newport inexpensive casual places is Mudville's on the north end of town. Just get to the main drag from the water and make a left. You'll come upon it, just outside the hussle of town. Easy walk. It is a pub connected to the local baseball field. The back porch of the pub is in right field, so you can actually watch the game, if they're playing. Good burgers, etc.

Once owned a boat is a touchable dream. It can be worked on and endlessly improved, the messin' about tactile foreplay to voyages in the mind.
