Sound Summer Fun

Sometime you just have to stop working and go have some fun with good friends. There is no better way to do this than to spend the day out on the water. We are lucky enough to live in South Western Connecticut on the coast and have access to Long Island Sound and most important, have friends with boats.

You guessed it we took an afternoon cruise. After fueling, we motored up Norwalk Harbor. The temperature was in the low 80’s with little humidity, the skies were clear blue, dotted with puffy white clouds! It was a spectacular summer “10 best” day to be out on the water. The daily cares were left at the dock waiting for our return.

We were heading towards Oyster Bay in Long Island across the Sound. We were on a Formula 38’6″ Cruiser an incredible beautiful and very fast motor vessel.

Lady D. was at the helm and when we cleared Norwalk Harbor she announced READY in a commanding voice. After couple of aye, aye captains’, we were almost instantly flying along at 50 miles an hour with the wind and sun in our faces. The cares of the world could not keep up.

… and we zoomed out over the beautiful Sound water to Oyster Bay and back and gazed at grand scenes along the way. To share our joy and enthusiasm for the cruise, join us for a quick look at some of the sights we enjoyed along the way.
