Fun with friends and family
Jul 19th - Jul 28, 2018
On our way from Barrington to Point Judith. Anders is following along on the sea chart
Point Judith lighthouse
Sunset over Point Judith harbor of refugee anchorage
Anders is happy in the lazarette :-)
On our way to pick up Benjamin in Stonington. There it is...
Proud parents of a newly ASA101-106 graduate! Well done Ben :-) Notice Horizon in the background
Yay, our good Swedish power boat friends dared to join us three days on the sailboat !
Happy parents to have Ben join us for a couple of days, even though he's already been sailing for a week.
Father and son is grilling in the sunset
We celebrated Ben's accomplish and welcomed our friends with Champagne. One of them(the real Champagne) our friends bought. Thank You, Åke and Anneli :-)
Ben is practicing Celestial navigation with the sextant. You need to take those sightings :-)
We took shelter in Shelter harbor, from an approaching front with wind gusts up to 30 knots. Narrow and shallow inlet. Very safe harbor.
Ben is trying out our Wind vane, Bob. He, Ben, looks pretty happy with the performance
Full action in the galley preparing dinner.
Approaching Block Harbor. Anchoring in the Great Salt pond
Ben is holding on to his, next best friend!
We got company :-)
Another night anchored in Point Judith harbor. So sheltered with the big stone breaker around the harbor
We got an extra night with Ben, Yay, since his flight got cancelled
Early morning approaching Jerusalem to drop of Ben for an Uber to the airport
Anders and Bob in action. Doing well!
On our way in to Cuttyhunk pond
We visited our Boulder friends , who has an amazing place on the island. This is their view :-)
We also managed to do some work on the boat. We assembled the Watt&Sea hydro-generator! Pretty happy with the result. Unfortunately we couldn't really try it because the next day we hardly had any wind :-(
