Saw this cruise liner come into the harbor, late yesterday afternoon.
We had a storm blow through last night about 5:30, with high winds and rain of course, but it had started to clear off by 9:30.
Here’s the statue of Liberty at night.
We got up shortly after 5, and weighed anchor by 6. It was just as well as Andy had to maneuver around a lot of traffic, and it likely would have been worse if we had waited longer. There were all kinds of water taxis and ferries crossing the Hudson as well a tugs, barges and other pleasure craft.
It was still kind of foggy or smoggy in the big apple, but here’s some of my early morning pictures.
We reached the Highway 95 George Washington Bridge) at 7:40,
and were in Tarry Town by 9:20, where they seem to be constructing a new bridge.
We moved into the Catskills, amazing scenery, so close to NYC.
You know I like lighthouses…here’s some that I found along or in the Hudson today all very different.
Our original destination was Kingston, which we reached at 3:20, we decided to go another 17 miles to an anchorage in Duck Cove, which we reached at 5:05. We are anchored about 1 mile away from where this boat is being unloaded.
Saw this tug go by about an hour ago– must be a span for a bridge.
Our distance for the day was about 110 miles, once we were out of NYC we rode the tide, at times going over 11.5 mph, which really helped. The temperature was in the mid to high 80’s Great Day for Cruising. Hope to get to Troy and the start of the New York Canal System tomorrow.
