I have sea salt in my veins but live 30 minutes from the Long Island Sound ~ a good 60 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean.
There are truly some days my world will stop if I can't smell some good sea salt in my nostrils!
You catch the ferry in Bridgeport ~ located on the wrong side of the railroad tracks for sure!
You can find some interesting things anywhere though.
We had to park on the street because the parking lot was full only to discover this building ~
The Oldest surviving home in Connecticut built by African Americas.
I never knew this existed !
And this beautiful building that I admire when driving on I~95.
I just love the lettering on this building and what a treat to see it up close!
Sometimes I just take the ride there and back without Ever getting off the ferry!
Frank and I like to go over just to have dinner at Danfords ~ a nice Inn near the ferry dock.
That's what we did a few Sundays ago.
There are lots of little shops you can visit and great places to eat but we like this one located right on the water.
Here is the view just as you are approaching Port Jefferson ~
See the Big sand dunes?
When I was a teen I used to take the ferry and walk an hour along the shore so I could sit on those dunes.
I went alone with my backpack,blanket and diary.
That was a day in heaven for me!
We've arrived at the Port ~ lets take a walk down Main street !
Remember when these Telephone Booths used to be on EVERY corner!
There's Frank ~ walking back to the ferry after a wonderful meal.
