Poughkeepsie Yacht Club - At our dock

The Poughkeepsie Yacht Club is in a beautiful setting, I think
When the weather is calm the anchorage off Hook Mountain is fine and last night was one of those calm nights, it was still as a lake. Hoolie relief is a short ride to the beach where we try to avoid other dogs at play - Hoolie loves to play to the exclusion of what he's supposed to be doing while on shore!

We had the tide with us going up the river so we were able to cruise at 9 kts but the day was hot. Coming into our slip with 1.5 kts of current behind us was exciting but we made it okay. A trip to the local diner with friends completed the day and we sure enjoyed the sunset on the way back.

This summer's cruise didn't go as well as we had hoped given the genset repairs, having to replace the outboard motor and more work to be done on the freezer but we ought to now be ready for our second cruise down the ICW in September.
This ends my blog for the summer. Be sure to join us again on 9/15 - pending the status of hurricanes it might be a few days earlier or later.
