We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Stonington Borough (pop 929) is as boaty and salty a tiny village as can be found on the East Coast. It is also quaint as heck, almost to a fault. It's a popular summer getaway, right down the road from Westerly and Watch Hill, RI. Also, it has a sizeable retirement population because there is so much to do around there.
Its rock coast has only a postage stamp-sized beach. There is one very pleasant inn, and a yacht club.
Nice boat - a Hunt 33. Mrs. BD wants it.
A bunch more pics below the fold -
The village has 4 restaurants, mainly specializing in seafood. This is Noah's
Stonington has CT's only remaining large-scale commercial fishing and lobster fleet
We figure this kid must have been a cabin boy. A trip to Demarary, aka Demarara (Guinea).
Prop guards for sailing instructors - I like those
I love this utility cum recreational boat in center, with a mast for a staysail. A true Downeast style.
The Breakwater Restaurant, where the view is better than the cuisine
