We arrived here yesterday with Summer Wind - Rusty and Nancy Field from Johnson City, TN. Had a great time with them over the past couple of weeks. We met them in Portland, Maine back at the end of August and have been sailing with them on and off for the past 3 weeks.
But we are departing ways today. We are sailing to New London, CT to park High Spirits for four days while Joe goes to an MIT meeting on Wed. We will be staying with the Buehlers until Thursday. Summer Wind is off to explore the eastern end of Long Island. Summer Wind will be hauled out for the winter and some repair work.
Stonington, CT is a nice little town and the Dodson Boat Yard is a great place to park your boat. They have tender service that ran till 11 pm last night.
In New London, CT we are staying on the City moorings and have to use the dinghy. Also have to change the oil, oil filter and add grease to the greaser.
