At the Ritz…

4 Nov

Ok, well we’re not at the Ritz, but we are at a marina in Newport. When we called in, the only place accepting transients was Newport Yachting Center – a marina berth, wifi and various facilities including access to the Marriott health club. We feel fluffed and buffed! We also did laundry, got food, got a US phone, walked, hit the West Marine and had a good coffee or two. We arrived in Newport Friday afternoon and left Sunday morning (almost forgot about the time change!). It has been an enjoyable couple of days – Newport is always enjoyable.

Tomorrow we set off for either Stonington or Fisher Island and along Long Island Sound. There’s a nor’easter coming Wed-Thurs so we will find a good spot to hide from that – perhaps Port Washington. Then it is through NY and around NJ – we’re not sure what we will find and perhaps no communication, facilities, shops until we are past NJ and on to the Chesapeake. Sandy really hit hard. Not sure when next post will be.
