July 6, 2010 - Newport, RI

Today we got to play at being cruising station hosts for some cruising buddies of ours. David and Candy on Endeavor, whom we met in St. Helena, dropped in for a short visit enroute from South Carolina to Maine. We were happy to be able to offer up hot showers and the use of the laundry facilities at Suzy's house. And then we did a whirlwind tour of Newport stopping at one spot that certainly doesn't make the must-do list for most tourists, but which should be on every cruiser's itinerary. You never know what you might find in the consignment shop at Newport Nautical. And the prices in the retail shop upstairs are much better than those at the West Marine down the road.
