Manhasset Bay, New York

Today has not been a good day. Cold, wet, mechanical problems...
It has been raining non-stop for like 18hrs. It's cold. Driving the boat today was stressful. The waves were bigger than we've handled befor, winds as high as 28knots, pouring rain, Jesse had bad day today, & then as we're pulling in to anchor, our engine alarm goes off. The alternator belt broke. Thank goodness we were in the bay. Thank goodness we have Dan & Cheri too...they help us so much & the moral support is so reassuring. So, we're safe & everything. It's just grey, pouring down rain, cold, wet, overall crappy. Scott says he expected nothing less from NYC. You all know how he loves big cities.
 Tomorrow we will fix the alternator belt & get things ready for Thursday when we go up the east river, through Hells Gate, & to Sandy Hook...just outside of Atlantic City. A challenging body of water. Currents, tides, traffic.... Woo Hoo!! Maybe the sun will shine.

Will be thinking about you as you get through Hells Gate.
