    Default New Year's Day Hike at Montauk

    Hiked through the woods to the Block Island Sound side to a point where seals often haul out. With me were my daughters Margaret ( red head), Keira ( blonde) and our friend Sabra ( brunette).

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    That low cloud looking thing in the distance above their heads is Block Island.



    We saw hooded seal, harp seal and harbor seal.



    After some fruit, cheese and hot chocolate from the thermos we packed in, we headed back out.

    On the way home, we stopped in the village to admire this lapstrake workhorse. Looks like expediency beat tradition for this owner, with respect to the transom repair.

    Last time I was out at Montauk I found a hundred year old brick on the beach.

    When you said the "low cloud looking thing in the distance" you meant the low dark thing behind the sign, not the cloud bank above it.

    Block Island isn't *that* big!

    Looks like it was a nice day out there!

    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
