We ended up staying in Red Brook Hrb for 6 days... 3 of those days snug inside Carina sitting out what turned out to be a stubborn nor'easter. We had heavy rain and periods of gale force winds that gave Carina's decks a great power washing.

We left Martha's Vineyard on Sun. morning for the 50 mile long trip to Block Island. We had hoped to be able to sail but as usual the winds were either to light or right on our bow. The seas were also very unsettled and choppy during the morning. Needless to say it was not a very enjoyable day bashing into chop. In the afternoon we were visited for a short while by a pod of between 12-15 dolphins swimming along side & across our bows.

We are leaving Block Is tomorrow (Tues) planning to return to Farm River Marina for Wednesday in time to secure ourselves for whatever becomes of Hurricane Earl. This will also be our last post for a few weeks until we get underway again for points south as we'll be spending the following week at the marina while visiting family, attending a family wedding and reprovisioning.
