August 1, 2009... Oyster Bay

The sun came out today and we had a beautiful short trip backtracking through Long Island Sound to Oyster Bay. Finding a spot in the anchorage next to Cove Neck was pretty straightforward. So once the anchor was set, we went off exploring in the kayak. We found a place to tie up the dinghy tomorrow when we go to town. We also found the public beach where Patti used to go when she lived in Jericho. We learned from a commercial fisherman that the tonging we saw in Northport and again in Oyster Bay was actually clamming. We admired all the mansions on Center Island and just reveled in the great weather. Being in such a good mood, we cleaned Anhinga’s boot stripe -- figuring that was a righteous way to stay outside and play. John’s fusilli dinner and a beautiful sunset completed a wonderful day.
