[Scroll to end to see a late entry by Swanton, not late because Swanton sent it to me late, but late because I plum FORGOT to put it in this post!]
The rains have stopped and it looks like the long weekend is going to be a good one to get out and about. I’m back in NY, just in time to learn that a 62-mile charity bike race benefiting Autism Research is consuming every road around me, with police support, volunteers and residents cheering on participants. Just your average day, biking 62 miles. Good for them and good for the organizers to start is early enough that it shouldn’t be an issue for families trying to get to apple picking or soccer practice.
+ 62-mile route begins at 7:30 am.
+ 35-mile route begins at 8:30 am.
I was still having coffee when the 35-mile group started.
SoundBeacher adds some fall picture perfect photos
And as a follow-up to CosHarbour’s photos of the yacht Knickerbocker, by coincidence SoundBeacher saw the same boat last Summer when you were not posting on your blog. We were over in Oyster Bay Harbor, at the dock. We were told it was owned by Jim Dolan the owner the NY Knicks Here are details about the yacht.
From Swanton, photo taken on the Friday of the most serious winds and rain pre-non-Joaquin from a coastal Massachusetts perch. She says:
Our normal tides average about 9’ but with the full moon high tide and the surge I think it was about 11’ that day. The little cottage on the island known as Doctor’s Island was built 100 odd years ago. A flag flies when the owner is in residence.
Hope everyone has a great long weekend. I’ll be blogging but if you have a life beyond reading this blog and are out and about, bring your camera and send me the photos!
