Here is an other Old Hudson River light house!!
Thursday October 26th.

The re-masting went great. Everything was smooth, thanks to the professional team at Hop-O-Nose Marina.

We left the marina yesterday morning, with the intention of anchoring in a little hurricane hole right next to Haverstraw, but the winds pipped up to 43 knots and we had to turn into the marina for safe harbour. We spent a windy night on board and are angling to try out for the anchorage once again this afternoon.

Plans are to make way for New York as soon as the winds calm down, possibly not until Sunday or Monday. We will keep a close watch on the weather and will post another entry as soon as we make way.

All in all, things are good.....just a little colder then we like!!! 😊

I will be reading you !!
Salut Annie ! I will follow your travel for sure. On our side, Haig and René left BBS a couple of weeks ago and I took over the Finance team in the interim. We are looking to replace René. Love the pictures. It's like travelling with you two. Rainy and cold in La Prairie. Francis

Glad you are both safe and tucked up out of the wind and storm. As I remember we had trouble with WIND on the way up to Lake Champlain - or was that just me!!!! Take care and will be thinking of you on your way to 79th street. Love to you both Mary and Sid
