During the winter they had introduced us to a wonderful Portuguese restaurant called Caldeiras in the heart of the old mill district of the city of Fall River. We agreed that this would be an ideal place for a celebration. Lately it seems that life has been one celebration after another and it's nice to "ride the wave" while it lasts.
We'd spent most of the week in Potter's Cove, on Prudence Island in Narragansett Bay. We weighed anchor on Thursday morning for the downwind sail to Fall River. The wind was a steady 10-12 kts. and the trip was pleasant and relatively fast. Simple Life was anchored in the cove among the moorings by noon.
Shortly after dropping the hook a sailing instructor from the Community Boating Center approached in his skiff. We were respectfully told that the harbor master would most likely tell us to move. Contrary to the information in the cruising guide which was published in 2007 anchoring is either not allowed or certainly not encouraged.
