We’ve made it to New York City


June 5, 2016

We left our anchorage at 5:45, and returned to the ICW, where we had to go through the 2 mile Point Pleasant Canal, which had two bridges.

We went out about 1 mile and followed the shoreline, it was overcast and foggy in places, definitely not as nice as yesterday.

We passed the Atlantic Highlands and rounded Sandy Hook at about 10:00.

On our approach  to NY harbor and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, we saw several ships entering the Ambrose Channel.

The captain stayed on the left hand side of the channel until we had no boats approaching and safely crossed over to the right hand side, just before reaching the bridge at 10:58.  There were over  30 ships anchored in the channel waiting to be berthed.

By 11:30, the fog had lifted a little, and the rain had subsided so we were able to see the Statue of Liberty.


We made it to our anchorage, near the Statue of Liberty Park by noon, and here’s our view of Lady liberty from the anchorage.


Not sure what tomorrow will bring, it will depend on the weather, we may get Thunderstorms  and more rain this afternoon.
