jjablonowski is on a distinguished road
We rafted up with two other boats on a mooring at the eastern edge of Horseshoe Harbor YC's field in Larchmont.
- About 1/3 NM from the fireworks barge run by Larchmont Yacht Club
- 3/4 NM from the launch point of New Rochelle's city display at Five Islands Park
- 1-1/2 NM from Mamaroneck Village's display at Harbor Island
- 2-1/2 NM from both Milton Point in Rye and---in the other direction---Glen Island in New Rochelle. Plus lots of other displays inland in Westchester.
And across Long Island Sound, ranging from 3 to 7 NM, at 9:40 pm we counted 13 separate concurrent displays on the Nassau County shoreline (Oyster Bay, Glen Cove, Port Washington, etc.). Of course, in the distance the NYC skyline was lit up by the Macy's display.
Only downside: the Admiral got a stiff neck from twisting to see one show after the other. Next time I'm installing a swivel chair in the cockpit for her.
