We were hesitant to do this trip at first ― the last time we sailed out of Narragansett Bay the waves were very large and very, very scary ― but the only way to get over something is to do it (and, ironically, sit in the scariest, wettest part of the boat and pretend you're on a water park ride!) and with late summer sneakily creeping upon us we decided to just go. It was a good choice... you should always just go.
After our trip, Mike stayed on the boat for a few more days and I came home to work with all my newfound treasures and edit the photos I took with my good camera, which will be used in some delicious, golden late-summer-flavored artwork. The last photo is a peek at a painting in a new framed series I hope to finish by the end of summer :)
