Mellow Midweek

Pleasant temperatures, light winds and occasional showers characterized the middle days of the first full week of February. River traffic was largely unremarkable. The William F. Fallon Jr and Gracie Reinauer anchored in the River Tuesday but by Thursday, Fallon was on their way to the Riverhead Terminal on the north shore of Long Island after a stop in Bayonne, while Gracie was on the KvK. Anchorages were empty all the way up the River, with Saint Emilion having left its spot off Yonkers to load new cargo.
