Aboard the Arabella: Newport Harbor, August 15 (Part 1)

August 23, 2016

By Sallie Bingham

She won’t sail, she can’t sail, this great queenly 120 feet long, three-masted white ship; her sails are furled, covered with their canvas slings and tied down tight, and the hydraulics that would grind them aloft are silent. One of these tall aluminum masts broke in a 15-knot wind some weeks ago with a terrible crack, a sundering, and a crash.

As Woolf’s novel has become for me the measure of what a great novel should be, empathetic, courageous, unexpected, the Truro lighthouse’s beams have become the symbol of fidelity in women’s friendships.

It’s certainly a mistake to read a newspaper while at the beach; sea breezes whirl the pages away, creating a nuisance, and—even worse—my mind is whirled away from the beautiful long empty stretches of sand and water here at Truro’s Ballston Beach. A fifty dollar parking sticker is required to park at this beach for one week, but the money goes to the town of Truro, and the privilege of being on a nearly empty North Atlantic beach is worth the price.
