Heading southeast, out from Rhode Island after a great day with Old AF Sarge last week.
MVY sure treat you right. Every courtesy you could want, including an offer of a ride into town from one of the tower controllers who was on his way home. He, like many workers here, lives on the mainland and pays $90 to $140 a day (depending on season) for the round trip ferry passage, plus the 45 minutes each way just on the ferry. Yikes!
Now this was dining. (Yep, I'm doing the Brigid thing again.)
Island transportation, brought in by removing the back seat of a Cessna 172. Fully self-contained for camping and travel, and I get a fitness regiment to boot.
This is island life. Gilligan & company never had it this good.
Sunrise over the Atlantic.
