After 2 great days touring NYC we decided it was time to move up the Hudson prior to the Nor'easter rolling through on Saturday. We were up early on Friday and on our way north, what a sad thought.
Anyways, we had a great trip through New York harbour despite playing chicken with one freighter and were safely clear of NYC by 10:00 am. We did manage to motor sail for a while and rode the tide all the way to our anchorage for the night. We found a nice secluded spot inside of Pollepel Island and settled in for 2 nights..
The forecast was for heavy rain all day Saturday and they nailed this one, it poured all day long. We had planned on riding out the weather here anyways so we spent a relaxing day reading. There are train tracks on both sides of the Hudson Valley; however, the east bank carries only passenger trains and we barely noticed them as they passed 200 yards east of our position. We will be continuing up the river on Sunday, weather permitting.
Today's picture was taken from 2 Outrageous as Dagny lay at anchor.
