Block Island

With the anchor up we went up to Block Island. This is a resort island where we relaxed for a few days, very nice. The population year round is about 1000, in summer it jumps to 25,000.

We entered in a thick fog, the harbour was full of moored and anchored yachts so it was an adventurous arrival.

The marina, Payne’s, was an easy walk to downtown and a good supermarket. There’s an excellent restaurant on the wharf and several more within easy walking distance. The marina opened their bar for the season on the Friday we left but we all had a dress rehearsal on the Thursday night. Great night and ended up back on Kapowai with some professional tug hands having a look – at 2 am.

From Block Is it is an easy hop to Newport.
