Poughkeepsie Yacht Club – Intermission

The anchorage at Croton Point was very calm and there was only one other boat in the anchorage. The current didn’t turn north until 10:00 so we had a lazy breakfast and weighed anchor to head north. There was no wind so it was motoring all the way.

At PYC we occasionally see a seaplane flying low up and down the Hudson in front of our club. Today we saw the plane! It was down just north of the Bear Mountain Bridge, beached by a house. He has his own private airstrip on the river.

This edition of the blog now starts an intermission. The blog will resume September 15 when we shove off for our cruise down the ICW to Florida for the winter. We have a dock reserved for the month of February in Key West, right downtown. We’ll be home for Christmas but otherwise we’ll be on our boat the rest of the time. You’re all invited to be with us via the blog on our trip south. It’s the first time we’ve made the trip and we are really looking forward to it and sharing our experiences. So mark your calendars for 9/15!
