its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

July 11 - Block Island, RI

Great Salt Pond

We've covered a lot of ground in the last week and we've started our days very early so we could catch the favorable tide, and now we've arrived at our summer destination....New England. Where the days are pleasant and the evenings are cool. We spent today at Block Island catching up with friends on Amici and Magnolia. It was a beautiful day for a walk on the beach, happy hour on the back deck of Amici and dinner at The Oar overlooking Great Salt Pond.

Block Island is located in the Atlantic Ocean about 14 miles east of Montauk Point, Long Island, New York and 12 miles south of the coast of Rhode Island. The island is a popular summer tourist destination, known for its bicycling, hiking, sailing, fishing, and beaches. It transports visitors back to a life that is simpler, slower, and somehow, more carefree.

  1. Your pictures brought back some great memories. We stayed at the little marina in front of The Oar Restaurant...didn't have an oar to hang, but enjoyed looking at all the ones hung on the walls. Also loved the hand laid rock fences that lined the streets. Hope you guys enjoy your summer and we look forward to crossing wakes with you again soon.
