Turning in so early also means you wake up at 5:00-5:30am with 8-9 hours of sleep under your belt. I usually put on a pot of coffee and watch the sunrise.

I wasn't completely sure how to get around the south end but decided to just stay on main roads along the bay where I could still see water. For the most part it worked out; I only had to backtrack a couple of blocks.
|This was today's route. I started from Shelter Island where I live.|
|These guys also rode around from the south and came onto the Ferry right after me. |
The Ferry is wide open and very easy to bring your bike aboard. It's a 5 minute, $4.75 ride across the bay.

Most evenings I light a stogie cruise around the Yacht Basin and watch the sunset.
|Speaking of sunsets, tonight's was way above average!|
