ALGONQUIN DOES THE BIG APPLE! MAGNIFICO

Cool Dude - like he goes through NYC everyday!
Words cannot begin to describe the spectacular views we experienced today so I will let the pictures speak for themselves. We hung out at the Statue of Liberty and then Ellis Island before heading north along Manhattan. Pretty cool to see all this from the flybridge! We could just imagine all the people who entered this harbor as immigrants seeking a new life. It gives you goosebumps.

Departure:  6:30
Arrival        1:45

Distance travelled  49 NM

Total Distance  1508 NM

Docked at Croton on Hudson - 2.00 ft, $10.00 power  - nice floating docks!


IN ALL HER GLORY! TOTALLY TOTALLY MAGNIFICENT

WOW


Doesn't Zeke look thrilled!
Ellis Island

OK, count em - seven water taxi's buzzing in front of us!! 


I wonder if they have a Loopers rate?


Off to Catskills tomorrow. We are thrilled to be in New York State. The change from beach and sand to tall trees, mountains and the scent of pine is welcome . We went past SING SING today and tomorrow takes us past Westpoint.  Stay tuned!

Sing Sing - it is indeed up the river!
