Not only was the view outside my window a new one... It had to go and be THIS!!! I think we're going to like it here!
Thompson Bay is a new anchorage for us. We've been to Long Island before, but anchored further north.

The hours are 8 am to noon on Saturdays but when we arrived the sellers were already packing up to leave. There was a funeral on the island and the locals were closing up shop to attend.
Now my stomach was objecting strongly to this mistreatment so finding food was foremost in our plan...
Now fortified and imminent feinting spells averted... we continued on up the street with renewed vigor.
We bought one, Sands pink grapefruit for my sundowner later...
Notice the guy in the blue hat? He was in every store we visited... I think he was following us...
A stop at the grocery store netted us a few essentials and some home-made carrot cake... Wish we had found this for breakfast!

She told me of the several deaths that had occurred there, but all were easily avoidable events for us and it renewed my excitement for taking Jerry and Sally there later this week.
So add hitchhiking to our list of accomplishments for the day! We hopped into the back of the truck and were whisked away to the rental place. It was the home of a woman and we were glad to be shown the way or we would never have found the place on our own...
We arranged for a car for Monday.
The clouds were thick but the winds were light making the Bay nice and flat.
Jerry and Sally were on their way. We spent the afternoon napping and when I woke up I checked their SPOT tracker...only to find them already HERE!!
