Barb and George have been the best harbor hosts. Barb chauffeured us to do a full shopping. We stocked up on heavy items. She even helped us lug them to the boat. We dropped mail at the Post Office. After a lunch of cold cuts on Arthur Avenue bread, Barb and I headed out for a walk on the trails of the area.
From the marina, we picked up one of the trails that led to the downtown waterfront. In the picture below, Barb is standing in front of the Mid Hudson Bridge and further in the background, the railroad bridge park. In the early nineties, some forward thinking people had the idea to make the unused railroad bridge into a trail that connects on both sides of the river to trails for biking, walking, etc.
When we were walking back to the marina, we ran across Mallory and Jimmy, Barb and George's niece and her husband. We had a drink at the Ice House with them which is right on the shores of the Hudson. They are 6 months pregnant and it is so nice to see how excited they are.
We returned to the boat and the Mid Hudson Bridge was lit in red, white and blue in commemoration of Memorial Day. A perfect ending to a wonderful day.
