Manasquan, NJ

Today was a great day for sailing.  The trip through New York City was smooth as far as the water goes but the air was filled with helicopter fly-bys and the channel was full of shipping traffic and a navy warship.  Maybe they thought we were up to something but then decided to leave us alone.  Seeing New York City from the Hudson River is amazing.

The wind was cold and it was tough to keep warm despite the sunny day.  As we traveled down the coastline of New Jersey we began to see the devastation left from Hurricane Sandy.  The close up look of the damage was while making our way into the Manasquan Inlet.  This is a sad sight to see but rebuilding is already happening.
 This is how Nicholas and Samantha keep themselves busy on the boat.  Taping everything to the table.
