Block Island - The Crew departs, very sad

Lunch at Oars on the lawn, great view, great fun
ahoy there is me sarah! I have woked up and read a  book and have walk hoolie and we had brekfast and we are in the water i went in with out a life jacket it  was fun! we are now we had lunch at oars i love it and we are back on the fleetwing we are going to swim again and this is a short blog because i am going home today and i love sailing on the fleetwing but i have to go and i am very sad.

We were both very sad (like Sarah) to see everyone leave today. It's such great fun for all to get together on a boat. It's especially fun since everyone likes to swim and the waters of the Great Salt Pond are so inviting, not to mention the nearby ocean beach. They took the fast ferry back and now are home in what we're told are much warmer environs. Meanwhile, we're still at Block Island and will remain so for another day before heading out. We'll probably head west instead of east to Cuttyhunk since the weather looks unsettled over the next few days.

Only park where permitted - or else!
For the boat, I'm looking to replace my 4D batteries. They are now five years old and have gone way beyond their recharge cycles with their use on the ICW. We'll pull into Milford and contact Milford Boat Work for that job. The Volvo diesel needs a checkup and Brian McDonnell of McDonnell Marine will do that job - time to get the boat ready for our trip down the ICW starting 9/15!
