"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

June 25 - Point Judith, RI

Smelt Brook Cove - Anchorage 

Yesterday was such a hot day and today was suppose to be the same, but it didn't seem that way since we were on the water. I can see why people on the east coast like going to the shore when it's hot...it was at least ten degrees cooler for us today. Even our anchorage was comfortable since we had a gentle breeze coming in from the sound. 

We are anchored in a place called Point Judith Pond in front of a summer camp. We could see the kids kayaking, hear laughter and singing and smell their campfire this evening. The small towns of Jerusalem and Galilee line the shore on either side of the inlet...they are fishing villages that also have nice beaches, that were very busy today. It's a very peaceful quiet anchorage...very relaxing, after a few hours on a sound full of ocean swells. Travel from now on is in open waters, nothing between us and the Atlantic Ocean. Even on calm days the swells can be large. Tomorrow will be a short day as we move on to New Port.
