Stephen Ferreira's friends gathered to celebrate his 24th birthday Thursday evening and had the perfect way to do it ... by boat on Long Island Sound on a beautiful summer night.
The group floated up to West Wharf Beach around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, dropped off a few people, and picked up a few more. The few who were dropped off .The few who were picked up headed out with Stephen to continue the celebration.
The group included Wyatt Haynosah, Alexander Sobran, Kevin Ferreira, Stephen Ferreira, Padrig Dodge, and Brandt Thomas. They were from the greater Madison metropolitan area, Vermont, and Massachusetts.
Where were they headed?
Kevin Ferreira considered the question for a moment.
"Just out," he said with a big smile. They were hoping to catch the sunset. "The sunset you'll see on the water is more amazing than anything you'll see on land."
No doubt! Here's hoping you had a safe and happy voyage and that you'll have many, many more.
