Back in Newport

Arrived in Newport! Took 4 days 4 hours, but used all together far too many fossils as we negotiated a windless ridge for over 24 hours and then got hit with no wind heading into Newport (when there was supposed to be about 20 knots! Blah!

Uneventful trip otherwise – we got to use the entire inventory of sails, we dodged a really nasty looking line squall during the middle of the night – but it had thrilling lighting to watch! and we were visited by a nice pod of dolphins…

We then got boarded by the coast guard as we arrived in Newport – first time ever – apparently this is the new norm when coming into Newport. All OK they left happy. Then we went to Fort Adams to clear in with customs – and got to use the hose there while we waited and washed the entire boat down – nice!

It’s cold here! Feels like we’re heading into winter!

Misty morning

The Newport we know and love!
