Recess...It's official, we had the name put on our new boat. After seeing our former boat in the river with "Recess" removed from the stern it was a "no brainer". Recess is back on the bay! Posted by Picasa

Another glorious day comes to an end as the sunsets over the Barret Beach dock. To the perceptive eye, the setting sun is much more SouthWest in the mid-August sky than it was earlier in the season. Posted by Picasa

A beautiful day for a sail...We sailed from Sayville to Watch Hill with our friend Gail aboard her recently re-acquired 25 foot Catalina the other day. It was a confidence builder for the captain and proof that Gail's navigational skills are still in top form. It was an all around "10" on the perfect summer day scale. Posted by Picasa
