The blue Sandy G is a domicile that rocks (on windy days:) , not far from the Big Oyster (a must-read, by the way). I’d love to know something about the history of Sandy G. Read this link about the BQE imminently becoming a waterfront location like the canals of my favorite city, Amsterdam. Then again, if I moved back onto the water, I’d want a location like Bryan and Judy’s in Majuro.
