The decided Departure time was 8am so the taxi arrived to take us back to the boat at 7am. We headed out and down past Penlopple Island (papa has put the cart away and we know the names something like that =p lol) and saw the castle ruins and the fog on top of the mountains was beautiful. In this area there was constant train traffic and the rails were so close to the water it looked as if the tracks were in the water. We passed a big military academy at West Point and tons of old mansions built into the sides of the mountains. When we came to the Tappan Zee Bridge (across from Terry Town) the weather was beginning to look like rain and as Kathy said after here the places to stop become fewer and on a Saturday in NYC it wasn’t likely you’d find a place so we anchored for the night. It was such a calm night and we wished all anchorages could be as great as this one.
