Renting Bicycles

25 August 2018 | Block Island, Rhode Island
George Stonecliffe
When coming to a new port, in this case Block Island, renting bikes gives us an opportunity to see the area at our own pace, find groceries and barbers, stop at farmer's markets, check out the local Audubon Bird Store and bird sites, and get some much needed exercise. After riding our dinghy ashore to 'New Harbor', we rented our bikes. Then we headed to the nearest hardware store, looking for a short list of items that we needed for 'Julia Max'. The next stop was the main town, called 'Old Harbor'. Half of all humanity was disembarking off ferries from the mainland, or walking on the sidewalks from boutique store to boutique store. I've never seen so many different T-Shirts, Sweatshirts, ball caps. Occasionally there were some fine clothing shops to attract a range of buyers. Lunch was a lobster roll for George, and chowder for Sue. Walking around the small harbor, there were four rafts of about eight boats side by side. No way could one boat leave before a half a dozen other boats moved. They had to be in a silent pact to all leave together. The remainder of the day was spent biking out to the North Head Lighthouse, enjoying the countryside, and returning ultimately to our dinghy.

About: Summer 2021 finds us buddy-boating with Ken and Ruth on sv Misty Blue in the San Juan Islands, WA and Puget Sound. Vaccinated, we are waiting expectantly for COVID to subside, and Canada to open their Border to boaters once again. Cheers to all!
