Magnolia arrived Long Island just in time to prepare for our next weather front, happens to be the same one that is dropping a couple feet of snow on DC this weekend….I guess we can leave the city but not escape the storm!
Since a storm was coming to DC we thought we should head out and buy all the toilet paper bread and milk we could carry. Thankfully our friends Paul & Debra from Kelly Nicole were along. See Paul & Debra lived in Rochester and Buffalo so storm stories with them were only met with humorous mocking!!
Since the world was coming to an end we decided a bit of touring around Long Island was in order. We rented a Ford Escape and headed south to Clareancetwon where the guide stated “the road abruptly ends.”
This was a complete understatement! I mean, one second cruising along and the the end, no sign no nothing…just the end. No fatalities though Paul needed to “freshen up” once I got the truck stopped!
We stopped at a famous blue hole where people free dive holding their breaths. Crazy! The hole there is at least 650 feet deep. Annette and Paul wanted to snorkel it but with overall clouds and a water motion suggesting they could be sucked down and flushed out! Later reviewing the plan and the outcome with the locals they maid them promise never to think about swimming there again, too dangerous….oh.
I forgot to include the picture of Paul any the Memorial to all the people who have dies swimming in the hole…actually free divers but makes for a better story….
Well I am still writing on my cell phone so I need to go before my thumbs cramp up…be safe and buy a snow shovel. Vessel and Crew are well!
