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!

Making a Splash...(Click on image for the larger view)...This tourist speed boat gets it's passengers to scream a bit as it plows through a rather large wake on the Hudson River.

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.

The weekend weather was perfect for boating and beaching. Our niece Laura and her boyfriend Bryan came to vist and got their first glimpse of Fire Island and the Great South Bay. Click on the image for a larger view of this Friday afternoon beach scene where most members of the "crowd" are seagulls.

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.
