Chrisholm, Chester CT

Finally!  We got off this morning despite the questionable weather forecast.  We hit winds of 20 knots and 3-4 foot seas, but our tug handled them beautifully.

Right off we met Nordic Tug "Ad Hock" NT 37-159 in the Connectuicut River at Deep River owned by Henry and Beth Hockerman. We said our fairwell at Old Saybrook breakwater as they're on their way to cruise the Cape. Fair winds, Hernry and Beth.

With 3-4 foot seas and gusts to 25+ knots didn't quite make it to Port Washington, but hope to do so tomorrow. Before spray covered our windows we managed a shot of Faulkner's Island as we passed Guilford, CT.

Our grandson Tryler is making the first part of the loop with us and taking his duties of watching Ellie and River seriously.

More from Port Washington, NY tomorrow but for tonight a great sunset.


  1. Bon Voyage!
    Hope you all have a great trip.

  2. Gorgeous pictures; we're very excited to get the updates. Glad the boat performed so well.
