You are missing out.
If you had an over night anchor you could anchor in the inner harbor at Pt Judith instead of sailing up wind all the way back to block. Not talking about the harbor of refuge at the entrance. Way up inside. Beautiful spot. Not well known because most chart books don't show it. The anchorage is in front of Johnathan Island. It's a bit of a motor up to the anchorage but it's very protected and quiet. We stop there instead of block on every trip to Cutty.

The inner harbor is an undiscovered gem. All every one sees is the commercial docks and the outer anchorage. BTW a very close friend owns Johnathan Island and has archers Oyster beds around it.
If you like war ships and haven't been there, Battle ship cove is incredible. They have a large PT boat exhibit, sub, cruiser and the Battle ship Mass. You won't believe how much teak is on the deck! It's 6" thick IIRC. When we went ya few years back there was a restaurant w/ docks right there. The dockage was free if you ate at the restaurant. Not sure if it's still there.
The Hershoff museum in Bristol is another must see.
