We filled our Saturday on Block Island with filling up fuel, water and emptying waste. About an hour after we left the fuel dock, a 165 foot motor yacht came in and dropped its anchor 50 feet in front of us. She proceeded to med moor to the fuel dock right in front of us and was then joined by another. Amazing power and control. And took up the whole fuel dock.
We left early Sunday morning and motored our way to Newport. We called Oldport and picked up a mooring right away. Took Alan into town and ambled around. Several thunderstorms threatened so we took refuge in a Starbucks. Had an interesting conversation with a delivery captain and then back to the boat.
On Monday we were waiting for delivery of a sail batten so Alan and I did laundry and Ed waxed. Chores were done like cleaning and repair. Onward came in, picked up a mooring and delivered parts. Then we went to the baseball game. Carmine field was within easy walking distance, cost $2 per senior and had a lovely small town atmosphere. We think the Gulls won but we left early to see the fireworks from Jamestown.
