Good friends

I'm catching up, but still have a lot to do. A night at anchor helps.
I wanted to mention, today, Tuesday, 9/11/2012, eleven years after the attack on the World Trade Center, we traveled down the beautiful Hudson, and passed the new World Trade Center, and the 9/11 memorial at 11:00AM, on 9/11, on the 11th anniversary of the attack. We shall always remember!
We left Block Island, and headed to Noank, CT. The plan was to dock at Nyman's Fuel Dock, and Ford Lobster, and meet up with good cruising friends, Steve and Di, (Sanctuary, the yacht they are captaining) Bob and Nonnie (MV Miss Grace, who we spent time in the Islands with last spring) and Dave and Pat (MV Sceptre). Best laid cruising plans! We arrived mid afternoon. Steve and Di were headed our way and had to turn back because of rough seas. Bob and Nonnie and Dave and Pat were going to drive to Noank, so the get-together was delayed by a day. Our schedule is, we have no schedule, so we stayed an extra day. The gang was going to arrive late afternoon the next day, so we put the tender in the water, and drove to Mystic, CT, the home of Mystic Seaport. We were there by car twelve years ago, but to see it by water is always different. What a neat place! After a slice at the world famous Mystic Pizza, a little exploring, and play time on the beach with the girls, it was time for cocktail hour with the gang on Sanctuary. (73 foot Outer Reef, WOW!) After cocktail hour, we headed up the dock to pig out on lobstah, have a fun time with friends, and close the place down. OH, it is also a BYOB. Love BYOB's! Good thing they didn't rent the tables by the hour!

If you are wondering what a Lobster pound is, this is a lobster pound.
