I like Newport. It has a lot of restaurants, an abundance of little shops, and a harbor bustling with sailboats, tour boat , fishing boats, and mega yachts. There is always something to see and do. Early morning flat calm, afternoon sea breezes and gorgeous sunsets. This is a place this pirate could call home.

Second trip - Cuttyhunk. This place, I've heard is Janice and David's favorite place. We have now been there twice so far this season. We have visited "The Mall". This encompasses the fishing shacks on the dock, the heads at the head of the dinghy dock, Bart's Cart, the Corner Store, and The Market up the hill. Captain Bruce's fish store, an ice-cream shop (not open yet) and the Raw Bar land location are all in the row of fishing shacks on the dock. Captain Bruce sells lobsters, and sometimes striped bass, schrod, scallops and ICE. The ice-cream shop usually boats about 3-4 different flavors of ice-cream every week. The famous Raw Bar not only has a land base here, but every night around 5:30 they come around the harbor in a boat, shucking and selling locally harvested oysters, little-necks, shrimp, chowder and stuffies. YUM. We have quite a collection of Cuttyhunk Raw Bar cups. They come in handy for many things - drinking cups for dinghy rides, and even as a bailer now and then. I think I'll like Cuttyhunk more when the season is in full swing. It was quiet and there weren't many boats or people around.
|Janice says the sun always shines in Cuttyhunk. So far I have to agree.|
