We did not travel very far over the past week since our last posting. We spent 5 days anchored in Newport Harbor over the busy 4th of July holiday weekend. Needless to say we were ready to move on to a quieter place.
dinghied over to a town park and dropped an anchor just off to hear a local reggae band while we drank Margaritas. Newport put on a fantastic fireworks display at Ft. Adams point on Sunday which was surpassed only by Mother Nature who gave us one of the most spectacular sunsets in recent memory just before the show.
We left Newport on Monday morning in light winds and calm seas. With the help of the “iron genny and then some beautiful spinnaker sailing we traveled about 25 miles to Cuttyhunk.
