Stonington - We Meet Up With John McKinney

Hi it's me Matt. Today I slept in. Then we had break fast. I passed a Fluencies teswt for reading. Then we took off for Stonington and I put up the main sail. We went through the Watch Hill Passage and then I got to talk the main sail in. Then we picked up Mr. McKinney's mooring. Then we had tunafish melts for lunch and Mr. McKinney came and rafted to us. THE END.

We left Block Island with no wind so we motored to Stonington. The day was with bright sun, beautiful but with no wind! Upon entering the harbor we found McKinney's mooring empty so we picked it up. It was apparent it had no been used for awhile with the growth on the lines. We settled in with wine for happy hour when John arrived on his way back from Maine! It was the first time he used the mooring in a month and won't for the rest of the season. We decided to raft up since the night was predicted to be calm and we all had a nice chat about our mutual experiences. Tomorrow it's Essex where Matthew leaves the boat in time for the start of a new school year!
