We motor sailed today up to Milford, CT. An uneventful day covering 48 miles. We left at a leisurely 9 a.m. and arrived at 6:30 p.m. As we edged closer we could see fine home sitting at the edge of the water enjoying a wide and spectacular view of Long Island Sound.
John remembered being here a year ago and was pleased to see Milford's floating docks again. They're easy to tie up to and rise and fall with the tide so you don't have to worry about having too little line out.
Once ashore, we were greeted with Milford's long history and some great old buildings.
Back on board John cooked a capital spaghetti dinner complete with tomatoes, cucumbers, wine and baguette from the Bistro.
Avanti looked great amongst the fine line of elegant sailing boats in the marina. tomorrow we head further up the CT coast to Saybrook. Miles Traveled: 333. Day 11: Saybrook & the Winfield Lash
