Agree. Plenty of places to stop an enjoy before you get to Port Jefferson. Port Washington
has a few free 48 hour moorings. You could also stop off and check out the Nauti goings on at City Island:
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: DESTINATION: CITY ISLAND PART ONE
Technically it is part of New York
City but, has a nice small town feel. If
you are there on the weekends they have a small nautical museum you can visit.
I often drop the hook in Cold Spring Harbor for some quiet time at anchor
. Or you could head
Bay and wander around there. Guess why they named it Oyster
Northport is another Nauti stop and nice town to walk around for a day. Get a mooring
Then on to Port Jefferson. From there you could spend most of the summer just poking around Long Island including between the forks and you have not even gotten to Block Island or Connecticut yet.
