|Yet another prison, Burnan C Bain Center. |
They had no place to build this one
so they put it on a huge barge. Look closely.
The first hour was intense as we dodged and weaved around said ferries. If you watch the video you'll notice that as we go, however, the camera get smoother. Gorgeous day, gorgeous water, and a very short day. We traveled along Long Island, passing under a myriad of bridges, along Roosevelt Island, along La Guardia and into a quiet bay with a bunch a mooring balls.
We snagged a ball and promptly hailed the handy pump-out boat. It snuck up on us while we were watching a charter seaplane take off after dropping of a fare.
The first night here is free. If you pay for a ball you get a deal on the water taxi to run you into the little town here. So we'll spend 2 nights. Today we're cooking black-eye peas on crispy rice and listening to Yacht Rock radio (one can never have enough Christopher Cross and Michael McDonald in one's life). After 2 days of big walks in the big city we're ready to chill.
