If you can't beat'em, move your boat!

We awoke early, as usual, yesterday to catch a cab to Sag Harbor for the day where we planned to go to Christ Church Sag Harbor and see some on the
Men's wimbledon final. We decided to call the cab and touch base. When he said fare for 2 one way to 7 miles to Sag Harbor would be $50, we nearly choked! So we decided to pick up anchor and sail the 10 miles and spend the$ on a mooring for the night. We are glad we did as the town begins right at the foot of the dock and the atmosphere is totally diff. From East Hampton! Sag has no chain gift shops they are all locally owned and the feel is so "Un- Hampton" as they call it. The people are more relaxed, cars are bumper to bumper on the main streets but we didn't hear a single string of cuss words or see any near brawls as we did in East Hampton, repeatedly! The cars gladly let people cross at any corner! We are so glad we came! After a few hours walking and enjoying the whaling museum we took in a movie: The Trip in the Tiny theater on Main. We awaken to a quiet harbor thick with fog. Unbelievable, you can bear a pin drop!
We move east tomorrow for the last stretch before the Cape Cod canal.
Happy 4th!
Cindra and David
