Remember a few days ago when we passed under the Tappan Zee bridge and posted pictures of the blue spans they were adding to the new Tappan Zee bridge? Well, today we saw a huge barge and from our AIS setting we could see that they were taking this blue span down to build the new Tappan Zee bridge.
SHHHHHH be as quiet as you can be. We passed under the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. He might still be sleeping. This is an area where time has otherwise stood still. You feel like he could be sleeping just under that tree on shore.
The last light we passed was the Hudson City Light. It was also very pretty. Please note that lighthouses look much nicer when the sun is shining on them.
Our destination for the evening was Donovan's Shady Harbor Marina and the Boathouse Grill in New Baltimore on the Hudson. John got his first dip in a pool here.
On shore at the marina, it is amazing that you can smell fresh water, not salt water. We won't be back in salt water for several months. Tomorrow we go through the Federal Lock at Troy to the beginning of the Erie Canal.
