Here comes the long version of touring Long Island. Luckily for all concerned we ran out of time to see everything, so the following represents maybe half of what we could have seen. We didn’t get to the Diamond Crystal salt pond ruins (operated here 1962-1982) and we didn’t see all the plantation ruins, the Hamilton caves nor the Columbus monument at the very northern tip of the island. Our rental car was a “wheel on the left side” one which kept that part normal but oh we felt weird driving on the left.
Actually the driving takes place mostly down the middle and cars move left when another car comes along. Not much traffic and guess what? No traffic lights and thankfully no rotaries!
We turned north from Long Island Breeze which is located in the Salt Pond area of LI, almost at the island’s half-way point. Got as far as Stella Maris, turned around and headed south, reaching Dunmore before calling it a day.
