Shelter Island Boat Festival

What we thought we were going to see:

What we actually saw:

A maritime museum room on the way and a canopied booth at the event dedicated to Dennis Conner – an American yachtsman known as Mr. Americas Cup, because he was voted best sailor by his peers, offered history and memorabilia.

a ring he won that would fit on my arm

I got to walk on a 1.3 million dollar yacht – with an RV interior, to take a picture of another yacht and then got a free ride around the harbor on the electric boat.

We got to walk the yacht from the top – 2 ladder climbs up from walking on, to the bottom – just a few steps down to the engine room. Even the middle has a few steps of its own.

The electric boat is chartered by San Diego Comfort Cruise and they offer us some amazing views while in the harbor.

And here are some other photos I took on our way back to the car.

    We might have to go for another ride in the electric boat. That was a good ride.
