Strolling The Vineyards -

 June 12, 2001 

We arrived in Cutchogue, NY this morning. It is on the north fork of western Long Island. The nice owners of the Cutchogue Harbor Marina (where we are staying tonight) drove us to one of the wineries and we are walking our way back through other vineyards and little towns. It is hotter today but a cool breeze doesn't make it too bad. This part of LI is much quieter and more rural than where we have been - - we are enjoying the more relaxed and casual atmosphere.

We had a terrific "weather event" last night. Around 1900, the winds kicked up something fierce (marine weather was saying up to 50 MPH) and went on for nearly 6 hours. For the last 2 hours, there was almost constant lightning, some thunder, and .2" of rain. Kind of weird and a little scary to watch (that's Jeri talking; Brian slept through it!). But the boat had no problem with it - - just kept rockin' and rollin.
