Sailing with Gene

We have been enjoy fantastic summer weather this week and were thrilled with the offer from our friend Gene to go sailing.  We joined Gene at "Shenny" yacht club in early afternoon under cloudless skies.

With snacks, sunscreen and hats we set sail into Long Island Sound  We sailed to the eastern end of Fisher's Island, and past North and South Dumplings. The wind was steady and just right for sailing lessons for Bryony and Keira who took turns at being Captain.

We returned along the shoreline to explore the resort town of Groton Long Point, making our way back toward the mouth of the Thames River and back to shore.  It was great to be out mid-week with only a few other boats, and mostly sailboats and a very polite speedboat!

After sailing Gene joined for local brews, Mezcal Mules and burgers on the grill. THANK you Gene for a great day on the water!
