We arrived at the Port Jefferson entrance at slack, which is always fortunate at this location given the current created by the 7'+ tide, and hung a right into the anchorage across from Setauket. You need to pick you places carefully and honor the channel markers, which will not align with your Navionics chartplotter. It is a lovely "marsh" anchorage and although we did not land on the beach this trip, there are fabulous "river" rocks for the taking. We dinked into Setauket and after a 20 minute walk reached three grocery stores, a laundromat, and passed a Starbucks, a pizza place, a produce market and a seafood market.
We are now making our way to Stamford to pick up daughter Beth who has professed an interest in learning how to sail. Then we are off the following weekend to City Island to leave First Edition while attending the wedding of my nephew, who it seems was born yesterday and mushroomed into a grownup.
