Jim prepares his beautiful Jim-made Pygmy kayak for launch
Drysuits make it official—it’s winter.
- We took a welcome break after surfing two- and three-foot swells to Glen Island Park
Destination: City Island for brunch. Outside Sugar & Spice Bakery, a most welcome sign after 20 kt. winds gusting to ? Don’t mind if I do!
Sugar & Spice is tile-floor, kayaker-friendly. Jim, Michele, Rick, David, and Alan (the smartest guy in the room—he arrived by car!)
Alex awaiting brunch. Jean reflected in mirror over his shoulder. We also love the sign for the bathroom (the “throne”)
Alex and Marina of Sugar & Spice—the best!
Hurricane Sandy left lots of debris at our usual beach destination on City Island. The sign at right provides irony…
Going back started with a surf launch, thanks to 20- knot winds and gusts to 25. A challenging, wind-howling, what-am-I-doing-here slog back to Glen Island
Made it! Always so great to have a Plan B… in this case, grabbing a ride with cartopping friends to our own cars for kayak pick-up. Guess we COULD have paddled back to Larchmont… but it would have taken till Sunday!
