During our ferry crossing the boat stopped for a “man overboard” drill. Stopped, just stopped dead in the water. They launched a rescue boat. An imaginary man overboard was successfully rescued and the rescue boat was recovered. We then went on our merry way. Let’s hope this drill is never for “real.”

Orient Point


We are at the eastern most point on the north fork of Long Island. It’s the terminus for the ferry. This ferry has had a significant part in our lives. It connects Long Island to New London, Connecticut. It is the way to summer camp, friends, skiing, Maine and so many events. It’s not a regular trip but we’ve made it often enough for the scene to be familiar. Like everything else, I take a picture of the lighthouse on each trip. Sometimes you like the shot better than others.
