Hinckley Day 6 - Waiting for genset parts

The coast south of Newport
Today was the day that the parts for the genset were to arrive - but they didn't. The 10:30 delivery came and went with no package from Panda! With that our stay had been extended at least through Saturday. Meanwhile we are both getting restless. We have to get back to PYC to get ready for our August condo in Ocean City, NJ with the kids. Saturday is the deadline for leaving Hinckley.

Lots of  blooms
So today we signed out the Hinckley loaner van and took Ocean Drive around the tip of the peninsular south of Newport. It is convenient having the van at a moment's notice to use but I'd rather have my genset fixed. At any rate, the scenery is beautiful and Ann took lots of pictures to use for future paintings. The coast is somewhat like Maine with the rocky outcroppings.
We've given up on getting out to Cuttyhunk and probably to Block Island too. Most likely we'll head for Stonington and then points west. We want to be home before the first of August.
