After full time cruising for 5 years, a couple of years ago we changed our routine and elected to spend winters on land. Once the fall weather approaches, The Rose is securely docked in Warwick Cove on Narragansett Bay, RI. We have a “bubbler” under the hull to prevent freezing and the systems are winterized. All things considered, our schedule has worked well for us since it allows us to enjoy our waterfront homes in Florida and Rhode Island. Because our families are in Rhode Island, we make regular trips North during the winter but The Rose is always our 1st stop after arriving. Early May is our usual target for moving back onboard and Narragansett Bay and surrounding waters are our cruising grounds. These shots were taken during her winter “nap” and during a road trip from Florida to Savannah where we met up and visited with cruising friends from Charleston, SC.
