Back to work Friday

Activity on the River was unsurprisingly subdued over Thanksgiving, but Friday seemed to bring a wave of catch up traffic. Three tug/barge combinations were anchored in the River at sunrise on Thanksgiving, but by afternoon the Kimberly Poling had pulled up her hook and headed for Raritan Bay for the overnight. Adeline Marie made an early Friday departure for the Upper Bay, but then came back and reanchored, still with her light barge. Cape Lookout was back at work though, leaving Friday morning and heading for the Phillips Bayway terminal on the Arthur Kill. Saint Emilion and Copper Mountain seemed to have exchanged a barge Friday morning off Yonkers.

Copper Mountain headed for Yonkers anchorage light Friday morning, passing Adeline Marie as she got underway.
Later, Saint Emilion came down from Yonkers anchorage, also light, and it seems likely Copper Mountain took over her barge up there. Saint Emilion was heading up Long Island Sound by Friday evening.
