Day 2 in NYC! Yesterday was a full day, and today was going to be another one!
We didn’t make it to the empire state build in time to do the tour before we had to had back for the ferry, so that’s on the roster for today, as well as central park and we have to use our tickets for the Star Wars exhibit that we bought yesterday. We are also meeting Vic Fina who TL and used to work with but haven’t seen in at least a dozen years. Vic is a through and through New Yorker. The perfect guy to get a tour from.

Around 10 am the wind in the bay had settled down substantially, so we decided to give it a go. About 7 knots into long island sound the waves were 1.5 to 2 meters so we turned around and went back where we came from. Traveling with the waves and wind wasn’t nearly as uncomfortable.
