EXCELLENT! Today’s hurricane tracking models have Irene moving further east, with a direct hit in this area looking less and less likely. Nonethless, we’re headed up the Connecticut River anyway to avoid what winds and storm surge the storm may bring.
Becca is safe aboard, and it’s a real delight to have her here. We’re all looking forward to a gorgeous, clear, sunny, 75-degree day with 10-15 knot winds for our short hop across the Sound.
