Why move? Why go in cold windy weather? We are staying here in Manhasset Bay, Port Washington NY until the weather improves. We have a great town here with good services, water taxis, city docks, free town morring balls, fantastic town and shops, and the LIRR, Long Island Railroad right in town. LIRR is a 30 min ride to New York City, so yes we are hitting the city from here. Very fun.
Here is the weather report and why we are not heading for Sandy Hook and the ocean.
