We traveled to Greenport NY to visit my parents. The town of Greenport was quite crowded and filled with visitors on Saturday despite the decidedly-less-than-summery weather. The ferry crossing from Bridgeport CT to Port Jeff on Friday afternoon was also quite crowded. The small bay side beach near my parent's house was noticeably shorter and my Mom said that the town had been busy rebuilding it since the storm.
