On the way Home
So the cruise was drawing to a close, and I was having a hard time believing a whole week had passed. We woke up with the sun to leave Block Island, and luckily the fog had lifted for the most part as we made our way up the Bay. The sun even started poking through as we approached the Jamestown Bridge! There was a big thunderstorm in the forecast so we were pressed to get home around noon time to beat the storm.
As we were approaching Wickford Harbor, we noticed several boats all heading the opposite direction, and I took a few shots. Looks like it was Larchmont Yacht Club out of New York on a cruise of their own!
Well, we made it to dock and unloaded the entire boat, made it home, unpacked the whole car, and THEN it started to rain. We got lucky, and it was a heavy thunderstorm. I'm sure the WYC members who left Block Island a bit later than us were having a wet sail back.
Anyway, it was a terrific day on the water and a great way to end an awesome weekend cruising up and down Block Island Sound.

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season. Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells. We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F. But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.
I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year. My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards. He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them. I decided to do board portraits.
A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather. And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall! On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.
