    We are out on Star Island, one of the Isles Of Shoals. I haven't been here in about 50 years, it's bringing back some memories. Just about 24 hours sail from Onset.

    Nice spot! Sailed there from Kittery point in a 12 1/2 several times (many moons ago) & there's some interesting scuba diving around there.

    I just had a chocolate frappe. Fantastic! That's a milkshake for you non-New-Englanders. Here a milkshake is what you would call chocolate milk.

    Thank-you, TwoDot. Good to see that the old girl is still chugging along.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.
