Branford - At a dock

Our new crew
Well the time as come. It's grandkid week for the next five days! The trip over from Mattituck was rougher than we expected with 10 kts winds (against the tide?). Either it really was rougher or we've gotten too used to the calm ICW. It's probably more of the latter than the former.

Nice red sky - the sun sets over the Sound
Around 2:00 the invasion started and we loaded up - with the  boat dropping an inch or so further in the water. Amazing what you need for five days.... We celebrated with another dinner at Lenny's, the best fried seafood on the coast.

We plan on making the first leg short, just to Milford and a dock just to test the sealegs of the new crew. If all goes to plan, we'll cross the Sound on Monday and proceed west.
