Last week was a big anniversary celebration for my husband and I. There was only one place we wanted to be: on the water in Narragansett Bay. We sailed off our mooring on the east side of Jamestown and headed for Bristol late one morning. After a lovely, short sail which took us along Prudence Island we arrived at the harbor. The friendly Harbormaster gave us a mooring # and told us that because we were just stopping for lunch...no charge. We rowed into the closest dock, hoping it was "allowable" to store our dinghy. The sign said the dock is reserved for patrons of a number of places, and one of them is where we had planned lunch, the DeWolff Tavern. We walked up the dock, into a charming, historic stone building and out to the terrace. We enjoyed a fabulous lunch (my husband recommends the seared sea scallops with garam masala sauce) and then had another beautiful sail home. We were in Jamestown by 5 after a glorious outing. Another Narragansett Bay gem.
