Statue of Liberty

I got up at 5am still a bit shaken up by the last day events. Our biggest necessity was getting some fuel and water. We were told yesterday that there is a marina across the river with the fuel dock, but having no gas to motor around and not sure of depth of the water over there I thought it would be best if we get some from where we were, even if it means walking a bit with the gas cans. And so we did. We pulled into the massive pier near where we were mooring for the night and advised by friendly attendant we took off with three gas cans for a little walk.

Okay so it was more than a little walk, but it paid off. We got the fuel, got some food from nearby store and we even found a little cart we were able to put our gas cans into to drag them back to marina. The way to the gas station was for us entirely through the park and we were stricken of how foreign for us is a city life. People were walking their dogs and we met lots of joggers and bikers along the way as well. In this particular place on West Side of Manhattan people were much nicer than you would NYC expected normally to be. Of course we saw some weirdo's as well stirring up the stars and talking aloud to the voices in their heads. Now it makes me think its maybe us who are more crazy after all.

Off we go again! Because last night wasn't much of a rest I decided to make a short run today and if possible make a stop by the Statue of Liberty Island. Now was nice, sun was shining and immediately we were in better spirits. We found a nice anchorage and by 3pm we had now lots of time to take it easy and get some rest.
