NYC to Milford, CT (Sat., July 26, 2014)

IMG_4430Matt tends to be anxious the night before we leave and he’s up at 4 am (by extension, so am I). We leave Liberty Landing Marina at 6:30 am, with the sun rising behind NYC. We pass the financial district and midtown, going under the many bridges (Brooklyn, Manhattan, 59th Street, Tri-borough, Throgsneck, Whitestone). IMG_4440We fuel up at a marina a few hours later in an area dotted with mansions overlooking the water. I look at the houses and wonder about the lives inside. We pass a lighthouse in the Long Island Sound. That wouldn’t be a bad job, I think, to just keep the light lit. Relaxing, no one around. Not much pressure. An introvert’s dream. Note to self: keep this in mind as a future career possibility.IMG_4583



We have an unexpected visitor in the early afternoon. He comes aboard without permission. He refuses to answer questions. IMG_4589He has no interest in food. We have no idea where he came from. He departs with a nod and a flap. We arrive in Milford, CT in the late afternoon.
