Now we are really looking to book it home, but the weather gods have a different idea. Tropical storm Hermine has other plans for us. We are currently in Port Washington, Manhasset Bay, waiting for the wind and waves to improve so that we can travel down the coast of New Jersey towards home. So Bob and I decided to make the best of it and commune with fellow cruisers like Christian and Mary on Iwanda and give Chanticleer some much-needed TLC. Eventually we will make it to the NNK.

At the beach on Fire Island
We are on a mission as you might have guessed , to get to see our daughter and family who live in the Port Jefferson area for several days. We traveled every day for several days to accomplish our goal. It was worth all the travel days to spend 4 days with the family. It was a great time. We called it the 4 day Bob Birthday Celebration. We had dinner out at one of our favorite restaurants, a barbeque with ice cream cake, a Mets game, row 9 (you could actually see their faces). Plus they won! And then the piece’ de resistance, a day trip to Ocean Beach on Fire Island. What an amazing few days with kids and grandkids!!!
