After NYC we pushed hard up the Hudson and in to Catskill NY. Sean and the guys at Hop o Nose marina are the best. Are mast stands that we left last fall were there waiting for us and by the next afternoon are masts were down and we ready to head out again. The trip through the Erie canal was uneventful bordering on mind numbingly boring!!
Oswego Ny was a welcome site but the weather was not. High wind, rain and generally the worst conditions for putting masts back up possible plagued us for a day and a half but finally we were able to get the masts up and the boat rigged.
Lake Ontario felt strangely small and the trip across the lake went by quickly. The site of Kingston on the horizon brought out all kinds of emotions to the surface as we sailed in along the shore in front of Kingston General Hospital. A big thank you to all who came out and waved to us to welcome us home.
We arrived at the dock downtown to more smiles waves and hugs. It was wonderful!!

Here is a bit of a summary of our travels:

Number of days we were away - 268
Distance travelled - 4582 Nautical Miles or 5040.2 Miles or 8111.4 Kilometres.
Nights on a dock - 16
Nights at sea - 5
Lift Locks - 68
Mahi Mahi caught - 8, (Mahi Lost - many)
Tuna caught - 2
Lobster caught - countless
Bottles of Ketchup consumed - 10
Jelly Fish Stings - 2
Turtle Bites - 1
Falls in the Hudson River - 1
Tan Lines - ( yes still a few)
New Friends - Many!!
Memories - So many wonderful things to think about.
Enough to tide us over until our next adventure!!
