Just as we were in the middle of setting the anchor a pan pan came over the radio that there was a person in the water in the vicinity of GW Bridge. The tug beside us heading north did a 180 back to the area and within 2 minutes the 1st police boat showed up followed closely by 2 more. Amazing to see everyone respond so quickly. Fire and or emergency vehicles pulled up on a roadway beside the bridge as well you could see them on top of the bridge. We never heard what had happened or if they found the person. I would have to say we look at debris in the water with a little more scrutiny from then on!
|Skipper needed a break after all that excitement|
The weather broke so headed to shore and went for an amazing 2 hour walk all along the shore of the Hudson as well as up the Jersey Embankment. The trails are well cared for and well used by the locals. Our night on the hook was fabulous. There was the most spectacular Thunder and lightening storm yet. We were able to sit in the cock pit for a long time before the rain hit and hit hard!! With the current holding us in a different direction then the wind we ended up with rain coming through the cock pit window so I was getting rained on while cooking dinner. We haven’t had to close those windows in a very long time.
