Re: Picture Identification Game

Outdoor bar, at the Oar. WinterRiver has it. I was also looking for New Harbor or Great Salt Pond, but the bar was more important.

This was from the outdoor bar, overlooking the Block Island Boat Basin. Few sailboats take a slip there, as the inside gets shallow, however, you can see all the sticks in the distance on moorings or anchor.

I have memories at the Oar that go back over 40 years. My Dad (80s now) and I still love going and thinking of the times we sailed up from Norwalk or Stamford or over from Fishers Island, when I was young. Back then there was no sushi, no frozen mudslides, no outdoor deck, in fact no windows! It only had shutters that were hinged at the top and held open with a stick. It was just the inside bar and draft beer. I'm not sure they had more than one beer on draft. We try to remember if it was Schaefer or Ballantine. Some parts of the memory are fuzzy.

Salt Pond became a summer hell of sorts. Loved BI in the shoulder season and went there a lot.... haven't been for years since we moved the summer mooring to NPT. When I moored on the east end it was like a 35nm usually reach / easy enjoyable sail. Less so come from way west.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Shoulder seasons are still pleasant on Block Island. All of May, June and September.

July and Aug are near intolerable, unless you find a connection to a private mooring, which I did once. That was glorious, as there was no rush to arrive. My step-son really wanted to bring friends to Block for his 30th birthday, so I dug around for someone who knew someone.

There can be the rare mid-summer exception. If the weather is snotty on the way out or back, it can keep some of the stinkpots from going. Also, the weekend just prior to or just after Jul 4th, depending on which day the 4th lands on, can be unusually quiet. Everyone (literally thousands of boats) needs to be there on the 4th, but then bails out.

I will admit, I much prefer MVY, ACK or the Elizabethans.

Re: Picture Identification Game

2 mudslides at the Oar, left side of the bar, Tom was tending bar, Great Salt pond, Block Island 3:24 PM.
Sept 2, 2018 is my best guess.

Correct. Outside bar to be specific. Can you tell if they were actually made outside or not?

Incorrect. The bartenders outside are generally female. If Tom is the manager, his personality is not cut out for customer service.

That's pretty creepy. Not out of the question, but I don't know exactly when it was. Given that was a Sunday over Labor Day weekend, it's possible, otherwise, I would not likely be at the bar on Sun afternoon. Why would say that?

Re: Picture Identification Game

I would guess that the pic is older than 2018, as there are dinghies on the far side of the dock. It's been a while since that was allowed.

I've been trying to post a pic, creating accounts, etc. but nothing is working properly.

I defer to flyrod.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Just to be clear, I declared WinterRiver the winner in post 1172, long before flyrod's creepy post.

You going to give up whether there is some embedded data in the pic? I went back and looked in the chronology of pics around it and it sure looks plausible that is was Labor Day weekend 2018. Can't say for sure.

If WinterRiver isn't going to post a pic, the new one is atop Cuttyhunk, looking north.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Minnie gets this one again, Cuttyhunk with the Elizabeths in the distance. As far as the Oar mudslides goes.... that remains a clairvoyant and creepy mystery you'll just have to ponder.

You're up.
