Sailing on Hudson River

The river gets very wide and very beautiful. High cliffs, tree covered mountains, eagles, lighthouses set up on little rocky islands dividing river. Hudson getspretty wide to my enjoyment since Johannes voiced couple of days ago his disappointment with the size of this river. Sometimes it's not the size that matters but we won't go there...

We dropped the hook for the night right by the beautiful castle on the island. We hoped to get on the island, but since we don't have a dinghy, we'd have to swim. Naaa....

Trains are really bothering us by now. The run alongside the Hudson connecting Chicago with New York and blowing their horns like mad. All day, all night, again and again.

We tried our luck with fishing - but nothing. I realized simple and basic similarities of hunting for a fish and a woman. Here it comes: you have to have the right bait on the hook. I'll leave you with this wisdom for the night as we rock on the shaky winds and tidal movements, and why the heck we didn't fix those cables in the mast that are bagging like crazy all night and did I mentioned the trains!!!?!!*$@
