Day one dawned rainy but warm, mid 50's. We walked around the Point neighborhood where several elegant houses are adorned with centuries-old trees. Many have their own docks, and adjacent signs proclaiming the views were protected by some tree-hugging organization led us to believe the dock we went out on was public. Most definitely not. The Spanish Moss draped live oak was in the only block not stuffed with houses.
For those of you familiar with the Chautauqua Institution, it was very similar, except on salt marshes, bays and estuaries.
