Bulking up

Sunday morning brought rain, warm temperatures and the first bulker we have seen on the river for a while, with the Nordic Skagen coming through heading for the Port of Coeymans, perhaps picking up scrap metal up there.

Mister Jim was also heading back to Coeymans with a group of gondola barges lashed together.

A small keel boat, looking like a 15’ Bulls Eye, braved the rain with two on board.

Dean Reinauer moved up river with a loaded barge. Dace Reinauer was anchored further up the river, about two miles north of the Teresa which has now been here at least four weeks and counting.

Norwegian Getaway was back at Pier 88 in the morning but was already gone by sundown, heading back out on its next weekly cruise down to the Bahamas. Norwegian continues to be the only line using the terminal this winter, with the Getaway switching off with the Gem which has been making runs down to the Caribbean.
