It's a beautiful Saturday morniing here in Newport, RI. I hope everyone has a great weekend! I am going to listen to some Jazz at the Jazz Festival and do some boat work installing some new equipment. A new AIS-B transponder, a new SeeMe! active radar reflector, and a mast speaker so my VHF fog signals will work (I never needed THAT in the Caribbean!)
Last weekend here was the Newport Folk Festival and I got to see Pete Seegart (of Peter Paul & Mary), Judy Collins and Joan Biaez!… Continue

What an awful time you are going through! I'll bet you are best friends with Percoset!
Have you met my friends Barbara Ann and Harry on Our Dream. They have a big, not friendly German shepherd. I know them from working the Annapolis Boat Show for many years together. They keep trying to get me to drive up to Vero to see them. If I do, I'll let you know. I've been such a slug this winter with the cold weather, am behind on boat chores. Hey, thanks for the daisies! Sure brightens up my day...
I hope your surgery went well and you are back on Quietly feeling better. When are you going to be feeling well enough to sail further south?
Sorry to hear about the kidney stones. Ouch! I have good friends freezing on a mooring in Vero. The boat name is Our Dream, have you met them? Lunch sounds good...
I have just stumbled across your info: the Newport Jazz Festival probably caught my eye. I lived in RI for 14 years, and eventually ended up in St. Thomas, which is now my primary home. Came here as a liveaboard in 1989. I return to Cape Cod every summer, just left on July 5! Fleeing the rain and cold. We are a little out of sync on the schedule. I enjoy the Caribbean, the liveaboard lifestyle (although I am on land now). Favorite islands include Antigua for general sailing and Classics regatta.
You sound as if you are a very thought full person .. and that is not a typo!!. It would be interesting to hear back from you, I happen to be 5'4" etc. I am a reader, rather than movies, abhor the mall and shoe collections and have more interest in spending my money on fun as I have enough worldly goods, with the exception of no sailboat.
Enjoy the Jazz and all that RI has to offer. If it never got below 65F I would not have left in 1988,,
look forward to hearing from you when you get a chance,
