An hour after sunset at anchor at Asharoken Beach near Northport, Long Island, NY

Left the city behind for a night. The heat, the humidity, the chatterbabblebrouhahadidyouseewhatthejonesesdohavepretend. Set sail singlehanded, eastbound and peacefully at anchor now. Ahh, bliss.

And BTW: These weird zig-zags and circles and such are not because I was drunk or inept - I just tried to recalibrate the autohelm unit aboard. :-) To no avail, I have to admit. Especially with a rare surge in the current the Autohelm goes bonkers and suddenly might decide to hang a 90 degree Louie . So my guess is this apparatus is fine when you just want to go forward to adjust something - but stay close.
