Long Island Sound up to Boston


August 10, 2009 - Provincetown MA, United States

Sailing was fantastic up the Long Island Sound and we were glad to be away from the big city.

We stopped at the Thimbles on the North Shore where holiday homes perched on small rocks.

We visited the Hamptons and ended up in Block Island on a very busy weekend.

BIG Nachos

A long walk ashore rewarded with a small plate of Nachos.

After a quick trip to Newport to book onto a training course for later in the year, we headed North again up Buzzards Bay and through the Cape Cod Canal.

We were told it was cold up north, but still warm enough for a swim on a hot still day.

We sailed to Province Town on Cape Cod.

Then into Boston Bay for some great sun sets over the city.
