Re: Fishers Island

Dog Watch Cafe which is Dodsons restaurant as I recall had some microbrews. The town is quaint and small with the village green and one street really. Lots of Victorian homes.

Quiet and not a lot of bars and restaurants.

When are you planning to be there?

We are stopping there this year. We come up from the Chesapeake the second week of August and will be in Stonington sometime at the end of third week of August as we hop our way back down the LI Sound to NYC/ Atlantic Highlands.

Sorry you felt like an outsider, that certainly happens there. Most of the people we used to know there are dead or moved off island. This past summer, we mostly connected with people that knew the same people.

To be clear for anyone that hasn't been there, they are not going to throw you off the island or refuse to serve you. They just aren't in the tourist service business nor want to be. It's serene there, but little to nothing to do. Only stop if you want to walk around and see what an island that is frozen in time looks like.

There is also a grocery store within walking distance. Pricey, but I was amazed how good the butcher was this summer. As a kid, it was pretty basic.

In the end, I'm not really trying to talk you into going either. That might be the islander in me too.

Are you looking for dock and dine? There's the Black Duck in Westport. Also the Crab Shell in Stamford, but I wouldn't go there only for the food. Norwalk has an ever expanding bar and restaurant scene with interesting options. Downtown New Haven has also been revitalized with a plenty of new wave eateries, but the city side of the waterfront is still industrial.

Municipalities in CT haven't really keyed into the whole idea of monetizing waterfront with commercial spaces yet. Hopefully they will come around.

Re: Fishers Island

Hey,

If you're looking for a party scene, check out Captains Cove marina in Black Rock Harbor, just west of Bridgeport. The place has bands almost every summer weekend, a nice patio, cheap food and lots of drinks. There are a number of small shops located on the grounds. It's real cheap to stay there and also real easy to get in and out.

Re: Fishers Island

Fishers Island is pretty and quiet but better is Watch Hill, RI. Great anchorage easy dink to beach...easy stroll to town with some good restaurants. Great ocean beach just across sand spit from anchorage. Long narrow channel with lots of shallow water to get in and out. Easy jump off to Block.
