Having gone back repeatedly trying to understand the attraction of the sea in my life, I’ve concluded it’s about the mystery. So much of our planet is a fluid–more like air than dry land–that cannot be visited without special gear and know-how. Huge creations like Manx-flagged British Courtesy above arrive from and depart into (or out to) the sea, as silent as the gull traversing the other fluid kingdom.

What comes forth from the sea on a foggy day sometimes boggles the imagination. Of course, this is ferry Manhasset, but to see this  “stranger-to-these-waters” low-slung vessel emerge from the fog can be unsettling.  Anyone know where it operates?
