Mystic Seaport

We made it as far as Stonington, CT. This is a good anchorage just past the Mystic River, where the Mystic Seaport museum is located. Its gotten cold and rainy. What a contrast to the 95* plus it was while we were in NYC. The trip up the Long Island Sound was mostly light air motoring.

The weather closed in on us in the late afternoon

And Becky on Kokomo caught some lightning shots. I’m OK with the lightning once we get into the bay, get anchored, go below and I get to hide my head under a pillow.

The rain should be over by tomorrow and we’ll continue heading up the coast to Maine.
