The Voyage Continues!

Escaping Haverstraw Bay (we hope)

Leave a comment

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4th – WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th — DAYS 14, 15 (Half Moon Bay Marina – Haverstraw Bay)

On Tuesday, we moved from Haverstraw Marina across the bay, to Half Moon Bay Marina. Thunderstorms in the area, which are apparently the remnants of Hurricane Isaac, are making us hole-up here. Moving to the east side of the river allows us to take the train into the city, so we decide to meet up with Sandra Lee for dinner on Tuesday evening at the Grand Central Station Oyster Bar.

Wednesday, we spend puttering around the boat. But now, after 3 days waiting on Haverstraw Bay on the Hudson River just north of New York City, it looks like we are getting our weather window.  The skies have finally cleared and the thunderstorms have stopped. Plan is to have a late morning start from Half Moon Bay (just north of Sing Sing – somehow fitting) tomorrow morning (Thursday) and head south to Liberty Landing Marina in New Jersey across from Manhattan. Woohoo!  After that, it is on to the ocean for the first time (that should be Friday, weather permitting).

Rain stops long enough for a walk to breakfast and groceries

Just pouring down rain

Skies cleared this afternoon! Yeah!

Lovely evening — finally (but heat and humidity persist)

Nice enough for bike ride into town (Croton on the Hudson) for dinner

Lovely sunset — fingers crossed for fair skies tomorrow!!
