Mary Katharine's dad, John Farnell, in his capacity as the general manager of the Marine Max, a boat dealer and broker, in New York, has access to very large and very awesome yachts. In his capacity has a gracious and awesome man, he invited the researchers to go yachting.
On the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend, Will, Mary Katharine, Caitlin, and I took the Long Island Rail Road to Lindenhurst, New York and met Mr. Farnell for our trip.
We embarked from the Marine Max marina into what I think was the Great South Bay. We rode around, got off at beach and touched the Atlantic Ocean (the first time for me), ate on the yacht, celebrated Mary Katharine's birthday, and enjoyed the perfect weather.
We are all grateful for for that unique experience. Thank you, Mr. Farnell.
