Our timing for the day's travel wasn't the best. We left during an incoming tide. Yesterday, that cost us about a knot, and when the tide shifted we gained that and more back. Today, however, probably because the channel is narrower here, we were sorely penalized. The tide against us was 2 to 3 knots. Our 2 1/2 hour trip took 3 1/2, which still isn't long, but a small setback. We also had to dodge the New London Ferry. Don't want to be in those guys's way!

Ever diligent about what we'll find in various marinas Russ read that boats dock against pilings that are along granite block walls. He inflated our blue fenders to be ready -- granite sounds harsh. But when we got there we were put on a lovely floating dock. Turns out it was only 3 weeks old.

|But, spankin' new piers for us!|

|What do you do with the old town bank?|
Turn it into a brewery, of course.
