Montauk, NY. The very tip of Long Island; the last part of the mainland we passed before open water.

Southern half of Block Island. To the left is Crescent Beach, the nicest and most crowded of the BI beaches. At the bottom is the Great Salt Pond, a sheltered harbor. Towards the right you can see the runway of the Block Island airport.

Another view of southern Block Island. Airport is to the left, and the west side beaches can be seen. The west side beaches are harder to get to, so most "day-trippers" don't find them, so they are less crowded and occasionally you can find naked people there.

Kate happened to catch a photo of one of the large ferries that are the way most people get to and from Block Island. Two make hourly trips to and from Narragansett, so this is either the Block Island or the Carol Jean.

This is utterly gorgeous. An excellent argument for getting a pilot's license (finally).

The last time I went jumping, the air was crystal-clear; I've never seen it so transparent, I guess I'm used to a fair bit of haze. Pretty strange to glance down, think you're at four thousand, check your altimeter and realize you're at nine....

Dare I ask how expensive taking the Archer that far was?

Trip out and back was about $1000. That includes a diversion to Chicago due to weather, and the subsequent hop south to Champaign. We got to double up dog delivery duty on that flight, too, which was fun. And we had our niece along on the way home. So in terms of person-trips, it wasn't terribly unreasonable, although really, it was worth it when I think, I flew to Block Island!!
