The flying time was only 40 minutes to Syracuse and we landed before 11am. I cleaned up in the bathroom, collected my bags and waited outside for my brother-in-law. It was hot and humid, I had forgotten to change into my shorts. Oh well.

The sun is dipping below the horizon and we head back to shore. We had sailed for several hours. Back on shore, everyone takes the sails off, and some of them load their boats on trailers, since they are taking them to Rochester that weekend for a regatta. The air is swarming with mosquitoes, but is a warm, humid, New York night and I love it. It is such a change from the California nights, where the temperature always drops and you have to pull on a light jacket or sweatshirt.
After saying goodbye, we head off and stop at a pizza place. Yum, a New York pizza (okay a New York state pizza, even I have to take my hat off to New York City pizza), it has been a long time. What a long day, how did it begin? Trying to sleep a couple of hours on a place from Salt Lake City? It seems like Salt Lake City was so, so long ago, after flying into a new time zone, climate, landscape, sipping coffee in a 200 year-old town, reuniting with family, sailing on a lake in warm weather and eating real, East Coast pizza.
