Hello from the other side

The weekend has brought perfect spring temperatures, though with a steady wind coming in from the south keeping things choppy during ebb tides, especially on Friday. A trip to New Jersey can provide a Western perspective on the North River. Below, the Haggerty Girls pushes an empty tanker barge from Albany under the George Washington Bridge, followed by the Dean Reinauer returning from Albany.

Closer to home, recreational boaters are beginning to appear more frequently as temperatures rise. An outrigged canoer was seen fighting a flood tide heading back towards her boat house and several 24’ sailboats were on the river.
