Friday catchup

Lovely fall weather was interrupted by a stormy Thursday, but conditions improved dramatically again at the end of the week. River traffic seemed light, and a couple of tugs anchored in the River Thursday after a period of empty anchorages. Cruise terminal activity was sporadic, and the dredgers appear to have moved on, with the Delaware Bay tied up at a dock in Newark now.
