Letter from the Editor

November 1, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Wait a minute! Wasn’t it just July?  Judging from the sweater I’m wearing as I type this, and the lack of leaves on the trees I can see, I know the year is coming to an end. However, I can’t actually believe we’re on the eve of 2014!

Looking at a new year doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten last year, when Superstorm Sandy smacked us up, down, and sideways. The only way she didn’t send us was out, as our story on a summer of post-Sandy boating shows.  We’re also featuring a story on the Civilian Air Patrol, one of the organizations that didn’t seem to get enough recognition for the role it played in assessing and documenting Sandy’s devastation as well as in recovery efforts.

Sparkling lights abound this time of year; they seem to twinkle especially bright on the water. Whether you’re waving from the deck of a bedecked vessel in one of our three Day Tripper boat parades or watching from the shore with a mug of cocoa in your mittened hands, we bet you’ll glow almost as much as the lit-up harbors!

Are you having a ho-ho-horrible time deciding what to gift to others at this time of year? We can help you solve that dilemma with suggestions from fellow boaters, as well as some great ideas we’ve found locally and in cyberspace.  And don’t forget about a gift subscription to our magazine and a download of our Hungry Boater App, presents that will keep on making your recipients happy well into the future.

There’s plenty more within our pages and extras on our website. We also add events, link to items of interest, and share wonderful reader photos on Twitter and Facebook. So no matter how hectic this season becomes, take a few moments to spend with us. We’ll help you relax and think about sun-drenched summers filled with boating fun.

All of us at Boating Times Long Island thank you for reading our stories, interacting with us, and supporting our advertisers. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus, Blissful Solstice, and Happy New Year!
