Day 3: Long Island

As I am so often inclined to do, I took the long way from Port Jefferson into the city.

And by the long way, I mean the very long way … to the very eastern tip of the north fork of Long Island.

Dam Pond, east of East Marion, New York

I was tempted to ride another ferry, but it did not fit my schedule for this day.

Orient Point Ferry, Orient, New York

I did hike out from the end of the road to the very tip of the point:

When I circled back through Greenport, I noticed a familiar name. Turns out I had taken a picture of this same hardware store 20 years ago. I kind of like the older sign better.

Not much for pictures the remainder of the day, but I did enjoy this water tower that I saw from my hotel room.
