Sandy Hook, NJ 1/8/2012, a set on Flickr.
Paddling? Sailing? In the end, neither one. I finally listened to the voice of reason & the voice of reason said "You know, that shoulder is coming along very nicely, but how about we give it another week before we resume the usual abuse?"
It was the sensible thing to do, but I was less than enthusiastic about giving up what looked to be a fine day for boating - until I hit on the plan of going to Sandy Hook for some hiking instead. I've only landed there once and that just was for a fast lunch break, and I've been wanting to explore it, and this was the perfect chance to do that.
There are no ferries directly to the park this time of year, but I checked the map, found that hoofing it into the park from the Conners Highland ferry terminal looked totally doable, and decided I'd give it a shot. Sunday morning, off I went!
