Coming into New York from the Atlantic Ocean is a wonderous experience. In calm seas you can spot the Verrazano Bridge, count the arriving flights at JFK Airport (2 per minute) and almost smell the hotdogs on Coney Island.

Dear Chris and Alyse,
I don’t know if you remember me or not from the Rendezvous at Joe Wheeler State Park. You gave me a personal demonstration on how to pick up a mooring ball (out in the hallway). I wanted you to know that after using mooring balls several times in the Keys, we had no problems. The first time there was a little anxiety, but it wasn’t difficult. After that, you’d think we had been using the mooring balls our whole life. Thank you for giving me confidence.
