4th of July Weekend – 6 People & 2 dogs overnighting
4th of July was a great weekend. We sailed out Friday afternoon to Coecles Harbor. Threw anchor and spent the night there at Shelter Island. Sort of slept in, had an epic spread for breakfast and then tried the engine, but batteries were low. Live and learn. Should have left just 1 or 2 battery turned on, not both while sleeping and hanging. Got a jumpstart from SeaTow (they arrived in 45 minutes) and we were off again. Sailed around Mark Cuban’s “The FountainHead” in middle of Gardiner’s Bay and then around the corner and south to below Gardiner’s Island(sailing at 8 knots and change). Gave up on Anchoring at Devon yacht club (it was so shallow everywhere and kind of choppy). So headed back to dock a day early. Switched to cars and had dinner in Amagansett at LUNCH – Lobster Roll Restaurant seated at the table next to Cam’ron and his entourage of a dozen people. Then drove over to Devon Yacht Club to take in the fireworks from the beach. Drove back to the boat and then up early in the morning to drive back before traffic started up. It was a one of a kind weekend. Good times and July/Summer has just begun!
