    personally, my favorite time aboard is always spent on a mooring. I find that the most relaxing. My friends, not so much ...

    We'll be out there on Sunday and will stay through the 4th. Probably head to MV on Tues or Wed. Maybe back to block on Friday. We'll see. We always anchor out near dinghy beach. We're part of a large raft of boats. Boat name is CORAVA. Say hello if you're dinghying by!

    Went to Block every summer as a kid 40+yrs ago and there was always the Italian guy going from boat to boat in his skiff selling pastries every morning singing opera the whole time! Is he still there?

    We were there last weekend. Old harbor docks were already filling up for the weekend. Also the harbor had people anchored as well. Have fun.

    He retired a few years ago. But his son took over. He's still selling pastries but no opera. Just screaming "Andiamo!!!!"

    We’re there every year for the 4th, and that’s the plan again this year. We’re anchored out by dinghy beach, usually part of a large raft. A drink or 3 sounds good.

    Yup. But this thread is timeless. Everyone should go to Block for the 4th every year.

    Lol BI is great but the best times are August and especially September. After decades we now spend the 4th week on MV and a few weeks late summer on BI.

    Where do you stay at MV? We like anchoring out... and unfortunately it seems like that island isn't really conducive for that.
