What was supposed to be southeast winds 10-15 knots turned out to be 5 knots on the nose, so once again we had a long slog motoring toward New York. We could have waited for a fair wind, but the forecast told us it would be a long wait.
We saw that weather was moving in and we just buckled down and put 60 miles on the log as we watched the clouds forming ahead of us. Luckily we made the inlet at Port Jefferson and dropped the hook in a protected spot behind the beach before the rains came. It was Monday so we had our traditional Monday Beans, this time red beans and rice.
