My kind of “traffic”

To avoid the NYC traffic, last evening on my way back from a business trip to Boston, I took the ferry out of New London.

Two jet skiers stopped by law enforcement for operating after sunset.

There was a different type of traffic in New London Harbor, as you can see! My kind of traffic.

Long Island Sound was calm for a great crossing.

Perfect trip back from Riverhead, and through Moriches!

Shelly: “An awesome mini-vacation!”We are happy to report that the east-west passage through Moriches is clear! This enables us to avoid the 50+ mile outside run between Fire Island Inlet and Shinnecock Inlet.

We simply followed the navigation bouys, past the USCG Station, with 5-6 feet of water at the shallowest points. We did it up on plane! Marc led the way.

It was the perfect weather day for this 62 mile inside trip.

Precious Cargo captain, Marc Elbaum, led the way though Quogue Canal, the Hamptons, and Moriches.

Shinnecock Canal – Locks were operating today when we passed… timing things for high tide at Moriches.

Holed up one more night here at Treasure Cove, Riverhead.

The threat of T-Boomers and bad weather made both boats decide to stay in Riverhead for one more night.

Actual dopler radar and predicted future radar made us opt out of the trip 80 miles back to our west.

A waterspout was reportedly seen here in Long Island waters this afternoon… a tornado in Manorville NY, and a waterspout was seen near Fire Island Pines.

Fortunately, Jerry and the Mermaid was able to nourish us.
