After arriving at Newport Shipyard onboard their boat Southern Belle at the end of July for a short stop-over, Mike and Jan Watts returned on August 13 and became regular fixtures at the Shipyard - attending almost every BBQ and party every since!
Always arriving with big smiles, delicious appetizers and wine or cocktails, the Newport Shipyard crew became their adopted summer family. And with their golden retriever Daisy tagging along, Mike and Jan would grab coffee and breakfast every morning at Belle's before they headed out for a walk on the town.
The Watts headed south on Southern Belle on Friday...bound for South Carolina to play the tail end of the golf season, then on the Caribbean for the rest of the winter. They will surely be missed around the Shipyard and we look forward to hopefully seeing them back in Newport next summer.
