New York!

This is the only picture I took today. You can see the city on the horizon.

Unfortunately shortly after I took it the rain started, and visibility went down.

I’m anchored here in a big man-made yacht harbour on Staten Island. Nice spot, secure and quiet. I can get ashore in the dinghy, and am ready to.

Nothing remarkable about today’s travels. I got close to a humpback whale just off Sandy Hook. I was in about 25 ft of water and it was sort of lounging around on the surface. Not much traffic in the Lower Bay, but a big catamaran crossed behind me at close to 40 knots. Maybe a fast ferry.

Weather looks nice for the next couple of days. I’m going to spend a couple of days exploring before heading up the Hudson.
