Send in the clouds

The string of perfect fall days came to an end on Sunday, with periodic rain and fog rolling in and lingering through Monday. The Dutch and Danish NATO frigates that had been sitting at Pier 88 headed back to sea Monday morning, perhaps to rejoin the brand new U.S. carrier Gerald Ford off Virginia Beach for more drills, or maybe to head back to Europe. In any case, the cruise terminal was empty Monday for the first time in some days. Tanker and cement barge traffic remained heavy, and a bulker arrived with a shipment of Brazilian sugar heading for Yonkers.

The Haggerty Girls and Janice Ann Reinauer anchored in the Monday fog south of the (invisible) bridge after returning from Albany. Janice Ann was on the move again soon to IMTT Bayonne for more cargo, but Haggerty Girls stayed put into the evening.
