Todd and Denise Roy, Moriches, Long Island

Yesterday, our friend Todd Roy drove over to Port Jefferson to get us for a day of fun. We dropped Whitefoot off with his wife Denise at their home in Moriches, Long Island, and then drove to the airport for a flight in his Cessna 210. And what a flight it was! Todd flew us over the eastern harbors of Long Island, then across the sound to Connecticut, Rhode Island, Cape Cod, out over the sound to Naragansat and Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island, and back to Long Island. It was a 2 hour flight traveling at 150-180kts in his retractable gear 210. It would take us a month to cover the territory in Stardust. We took photos of all the harbors we may visit and generally got a perfect overhead view of some of the places we intend to visit in the coming months. Afterwards we joined Denise for some pool-side fun in their heated pool. Denise was taking care of her niece and nephew (and Whitefoot) so all of us had a great swim, and Todd showed me some tricks to equalizing my ears. He’s an accomplished diver and spear fisherman (just a couple of his many talents). Todd and Denise fixed a scrumptious feast of steak, ribs, veggies, wine and beer. Kathy, Rachel, and I all agreed that their custom self-designed home was the best we had ever seen. Thanks Todd and Denise, for a fantastic day!
