Sunset over Quahog Bay.
We've been in Quahog Bay for 2 days now and I finally remembered to look it up and see just what a quahog is. It's a clam, also called a hard shell or steamer clam. It's the official shell of Rhode Island and can be pronounced: KWA-hog, KO-hog, KWO-hog or KAW-hog, depending on where you learned to speak English. If you're from The South, and never learned English, then it would be a KWAW-HAWG-ah. Quahog Day is June 20 or 21 or 22. And yes, there is a Quentin the Quahog, who is pulled out to see his shadow each year. And no, we haven't eaten any, yet, or you know I'd post pictures. (Hi, Jim!)
We've been relaxing from our strenuous touring and eating. Steve fixed the seal on the windlass that has been leaking and I sewed up an anchor bag for our big-ass emergency storm anchor, so it can stand in the sail locker and hopefully never be used. Amanda is coming to visit and we have to find the 'berth' part of the v-berth so she can sleep there.
