Fog, rollers, and new states

26 September 2017
John came up with a new acronym for fog visibility- "ICSAFT" = " I can't see a f***ing thing". The dense fog banks brought on by Maria have been challenging with the added 5-9 foot rolling waves. We are getting lots of radar and AIS practice! It really is cool how all of a sudden you emerge from the fogbank to bright, sunny, blue skies- then suddenly in it again. A HUGE difference from Maine is the abscence of lobster pots!!
We picked up a mooring in thick fog in Newport, planning on an early start to CT, however, awoke to "ICSAFT". Decided to hang out a bit and walked around the Newport Shipyard to find a beautiful 180ft sailboat docking- it was " Maria"- the big sailboat that spends the summer across the river from us in Trevett! Small world!
Got underway at 11:00 in slightly clearing fog and BIG rolling waves ( but not scary). The RI shore looks like one LONG beach dotted with large homes ( and crashing surf). Exciting to see lots of fishing boats, draggers, cargo tankers and all sorts of boats out on the open ocean.
Landed in Stonington CT at Dodson Marina. Screens are now covering open hatches and port windows, the weather is warm, no bugs, and the water is 70.
We're beginning to figure this out......
