Cruising with Mom!

After surviving Irene with no issues, Morpheus was back in the water and anchored off the Newport Bridge by 4pm on Monday.  There was plenty to do to get her back to cruise ready status - reinstall the boom, rerun halyards, get the sails back onboard, etc, etc. 

My Mother and Debbie returned from their visit to New York and we left Newport for Block Island just after noon on Tuesday. 

Deb and Mom - How long until we can leave??

Sunset cocktails at the Narragansett Inn, dinner at Eli's, and a stop at Aldo's bakery were next.

We left Block Island Wed. morning and made our way 35 miles to the West where we stopped at Shelter Island Yacht Club.  We are still there today, and will move on to Sag Harbor tomorrow.  A big trip consisting of 6.5 miles!
