A view of the Manhattan skyline from a Shippan Point residence this afternoon as the Shippan Point Garden Club judged the “Doors of Shippan” competition.

I always know the holiday season is in full swing when the “Doors of Shippan” assignment creaps up. It was a bit chilly this morning as I followed the Shippan Garden Club around their seaside community for the judging of the holiday wreaths and doors. One contestant invited us in to see her Christmas tree but it was this view that caught my eye. She said some days the sky is so clear that you feel like you can reach out and touch Manhattan. Home sweet home.
