Once we knocked out the New Jersey coast passage Magnolia was really on easy street! We had good weather and easy passages along the coast of Connecticut.
First stop was a 270 protected cove near a small group of islands.
It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon and evening!
I even took on a small boat project of wiring and installing some waterproof under counter lighting!
Next stop was the Thimble Islands. Our friends on Amici have a ball there and a great location to meet up with them!
Another tranquil anchorage to watch the world….( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thimble_Islands )
Of course we ONLY consume ice cream from historically significant parlors ( https://www.ashleysicecream.net/history ) yea thats not COMPLETELY true…..
Last stop on the Connecticut coast tour was into Groton Connecticut.
My friend Tom Leclercq was a submariner out of Groton. Said Ledge Light was how they knew they were home. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_London_Ledge_Light )
Arriving Groton we were welcomed by our friends Al & Michele of MV Kindred Spirit. They too were members of the class of 2013!!!!
We are off for a quick trip to Detroit and my nieces wedding. More next time!
