Oasis only spent one night in New Haven and left early to make way towards Norwalk as there was not much to see or do around the New Haven marinas and yacht club.
The sail to Norwalk was again very nice with sun, minimal waves and no wind. We arrived very early in the afternoon and spent a few hours exploring the place before choosing a dock at Total Marine of Norwalk on the southern side of the Norwalk River.
We will be weathering hurricane Irene here in Norwalk as there are many activities for the kids: aquarium, children's museum, parks and beach. We have reserved a hotel for Saturday and Sunday nights at a 15 minute drive in-land. The locals are mostly concerned with the storm surge rather than the winds, so we figured if we go in-land we should not be affected by the surge.
