Subject: Long Island and Boston area trip
Hi Ziners,

We are planning our summer driving trip, which will combine a visit to North Haven (The Hamptons) with the North Shore of Boston (and a lunchtime get-together in the Boston area on August 23rd, save the date!).

We need B& B recommendations: one convenient to the NYS Thruway between Albany and New York, and another around Albany (after the Mass Turnpike) for our return.

Are reservations necessary for the Orient Point <-> New London ferry? And what about the two short car ferries that connect the south and the north forks of Long Island, are reservations necessary (or even possible)? Is there a time of day that is less crowded than other times? We have seen the ferries' web sites.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Regards, Linda and Don Toronto
