I grew up just down the shore from Haserot Beach, and during the summers, we’d take my sister over to Old Mission Point in the boat to babysit out there on the resort. My brothers would helm the boat (with its 5.5-hp Johnson motor) and I’d tag along.
Here’s a photo I took of Old Mission Point today. It doesn’t look much different than it did back then. (One of the few places in the world where you can say that.)
