Sauguties to Albany, Tuesday June 18.

Out of our little creek at 8 and upriver towards Troy, quite a stretch from here.

Not much in the way of photographic materials today, colder and windy with showers.

So here are a couple left over from yesterday, saw this sailing vessel at Croton-on-Hudson where the Pete Seeger concert was going on, it may be his ship, anyway the name was Mystic Whaler, and obviously on a day trip with sightseers.

Sublime, and then of course the ridiculous, what do you suppose it could be? The Church of the Eternal Pineapple?

Then on up the narrowing Hudson still deep and traveled by large ships but shoaling here and there and narrow channels, I did ease over to let this lady past in a tight spot.

As she went past I thought it very appropriate that “Afrodite” would lead us up to Troy.

 But it was not to be, she stopped at Albany, and so did we.

Overnight dockage.

Learned here that ten locks on the Erie Canal are closed due to excessive rain, we knew about the rain, but not about the closing.  They are promising to reopen by the weekend. So we may have to hang here for a while

  1. It really has been foul weather hasn’t it for your trip. Surely quite unusual for such weather in June?
    Interesting pics once again, thanks.

  2. You and Mrs LW are very courageous. I would not like to be in close company with ships that size.

  3. Got to stay at the yacht club ’til the weekend? I can think of worse fates!
    I can’t read the draft marks on the ships photo’s, what sort of tonnnage do you reckon they are?

  4. JHL: I’m no judge of ships, I googled Afrodite, Tanker, built 2002 (had a hard life since then by her appearance)

    DWT 53,000, more than I would have guessed.
