October 14, 2013  Day 145   
Great Kills Yacht Club
Staten Island, New York

This is our ninth and final day on Staten Island.  The wind died down a little and the sun was shining. 

We did more boat chores today, including vacuuming, reorganizing some books, files, etc.; and we did more trip research. December is now planned.  We will be leaving the boat in Florida during the holidays and after making a couple of phone calls, we have made our decision on that.

The Yacht Club’s fleet captain came by today and visited with us for a while. We will definitely stop here again the next time we come this way!

We went out for pizza tonight (we are in New York, and most of the stores and restaurant here are Italian). Then we stopped at an Italian market on the way home to pick up a few provisions.

We will leave at sunrise tomorrow and travel about 11 hours (87 miles) to an anchorage in Atlantic City.  We have enjoyed being here but it is definitely time to move south!
