The Thimble Islands
After leaving the Connecticut River, we headed for one of our favorite destinations on the Long Island Sound, The Thimbles. These are basically a bunch of large boulders that God dropped randomly about allowing for good anchorage and surprising fine protection. A few of the very wealthy decided to build houses on these rocks, and decided to forego electricity. It is a very tranquil and beautiful setting.
After we had the anchor down we were hailed by Cloverleaf, who asked if there was enough room for them. After she set anchor we joined Bev and Dave for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres which turned into dinner, ice cream, and a good chat. With temperatures promising to drop to the upper 40's, it was a crisp fall evening that showed off the Thimbles best side.
