Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey

We arrived in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey, after an overnight trip from Cape May, and got our first taste of big-city ship and boat traffic. Offshore wasn’t bad; there were a few large ships, and they were easy to keep track of. But coming around Sandy Hook we came head-on to the outgoing fishing boats, both commercial and recreational, and played dodge until we were halfway down the bay. Atlantic Highlands has a nice breakwater that we anchored behind, and a dinghy dock at the town marina. We walked along the nice waterside trail, did some provisioning, used wi-fi at the library, and waited out some thunderstorms. All in all, it was a quiet visit, as we rested up for our next destination, New York City, which we could see across the bay.
