Sunday drivers

Sunny skies prevailed Sunday but the temperature held below 40. Three tugs and tanker barges had accumulated in the River overnight, though Patrice McCalister was on her way by 9am.

Patrice McAlister left her anchorage, traveling with RCM 262 on the hip as this tug always seems to when its barge is light, and headed to the Arthur Kill for new cargo.
For a second day in a row, Everly Mist was making an early run bringing what looked like dirt fill down from Tomkins Cove to the Newark Bay side of Bayonne.
Kayakers and SUPers were on the River again in the morning despite the cold, surprisingly far out in the channel
Centerline tugs brought a bunkering barge to refuel Norwegian Getaway which is making runs to Bermuda and the Caribbean from New York this winter.
For a second day in a row a Marine Super Stallion helicopter made a trip up the river with markings of Heavy Helicopter Squadron 772 based at McGuire AFB in New Jersey.
A red tail hawk also put in an appearance
