Sailing on Naragansett Sound and Buzzards Bay

Just a brief post to tell you where we are in our voyage.

After leaving Sag Harbor last Tuesday we sailed to Block Island in beautiful weather, but the following day began hopeful, but soon became dreary and taxing as a heavy blanket of fog settled over Buzzards Bay all the way to the Cape.

We did arrive safely to Cutty Hunk Island on Wed. Where we met up with gene Nd Christine Reddick on board their I.P. "Dream Catcher" and Mike and Julie Sneath on board their newly purchased I.P.: "walkabout". Both couples are from Pcola. We enjoyed 2 nights with them moored in Cutty Hunk the first in the chain of the Elizabeth Islands. It is one of my favorite places because of it's simple elegance.

Horace and Marla Garfield (whom we met at D's cousins Ky Derby weekend in Louisville in 06)
Have a home that was once a 2 lane bowling alley on Cutty H. It sits high on the hill overlooking Vineyard Sound and on a clear day you can see martha's Vineyard and the famous bluff of Gay Head now referred to by it's Indian name:Aquinnah.we enjoyed a cold drink on their patio on night while there.
Fresh lobster and Black sea bass were treats brought in by Capt fresh and so delicious.

Yesterday, we sailed east to Hadley's Harbor just off Woods Hole where we had a beautiful anchorage for the night in view of a cedar shingled home owned by the Malcolm Forbes family. This is probably our favorite anchorage of all.

Leaving in a moment for a short sail to Redbrook Harbor on the southside of Cape Cod where we will go ashore with the Reddicks to see Kingman Marina where they keep Dream Catcher.
