We had a very lovely visit with my cousin Debbie and her husband Scott who live near Milford. They are both wonderful folks…only downside was that we were not able to visit with their daughters. Hopefully do so as we head south. We then sailed from Milford to Guilford in a nice warm southerly breeze to the thimble islands where we hoped to spend the night. Unfortunately we couldn’t locate a suitable (i.e. uncrowded) spot so we proceed further up the coast to Guilford Harbor where we found a great spot on the East River in and amongst sedges and reeds and a plethora of bird life. A mama osprey is nested less than 100 yards away.
