Vacation photos

We're back from our week on the boat. The heatwave that roasted New England didn't spare us, but fortunately we had a lot of options to keep cool. Like swimming, kayaking, and visiting air-conditioned bars!

Here's some photos for ya's:

Lori, Joyce, and Teri aboard "Ebb Tide", Tim & Lori's new Albin 31. Yes, I jumped off the roof. Twice.

Me & Joyce on the top of the sand bluffs overlooking Long Island Sound.

Lori & Tim on the same bluffs, overlooking Port Jefferson.

Pete & Teri with the Port Jeff ferry in the background.

A view of the tropical-like Pirate's Cove. The water temperature in the harbor was warmer than I ever remembered it, but it was refreshing all the same.

One of the many amazing sunsets we witnessed from our boat. That night we watched satellites and shooting stars. Did I ever mention that owning a sailboat is the absolute BEST fucking thing in the world?

Joyce is wearing my hat at the Independence Day parade in PJ. If you look closely, you'll see my reflection in the window, with a tractor that's perilously close to running me over. Good thing I wasn't paying attention!

Did you ever try to eat lunch while somebody is staring at you?

Ah, I see what he's looking at!

Blue drinks! Everyone wants a sip of a refreshing cold beverage on the hottest day of the year!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, Guinness!

Horses swimming back near our mooring in the harbor. Some of them weren't overly enthusiastic about going in, despite the hot weather.

Back in PJ with Joyce's sister Jill and hubby Brad, at the Pindar winery store.

A nice stained glass window at a Northport eatery.

We came home a day early to avoid the direly predicted thunderstorms that somehow never materialized. Oh well, it was good to get home and enjoy the modern comforts once again.
