On our way...sailed from Noank, CT to Block Island, RI Friday and anchored for the night.  Saturday we finished the trip to Newport, arriving to the Navy Base marina in the evening.  This will be our new home for the next month or so until we get relieved from our jobs.  Thanks to Shawn for coming along and being such great crew!
