I just made reservation on the big Ferry boat that crosses the Long Island Sound. We leave New Loundon CT at 1:00 pm on Aug 27. and coming back from Orient Point at 5:00 pm.
It was pretty neat making the reservations on line. Just like booking a flight. Print out your boarding pass and all. $128 round trip. Which is a whole lot better than driving through NYC on a Friday afternoon.
See you soon.
