Greetings from Kingston (NY). Lovely trip although rather cool up the Hudson today …. no, we did not touch bottom getting out of anchorage, thank you. This part of the Hudson is very beautiful with treed rolling hills and the odd sheer rock face to add interest. Photo below (credit Peter Cohrs) is of the south side of West Point, the US Army military academy. We are anchored just below Kingston NY and should be at Hop-O-Nose Marina in Catskill by noon tomorrow to get our mast down in prep for the Erie and Oswego Canals.
