WHEN VIRTUAL BECOMES REAL

What a great day this was for two sailors

on their little voyage.

We left our anchorage at Castleton on Hudson

at a reasonable hour (crack of 09:00)

and headed north,

destination Waterford, NY

just 15 nautical miles away.

This is a place any boater considering travel

on the New York Waterway should visit.

We tied up at the Visitor Centre docks,

paid $10 for full service

(electricity, water, real showers and toilets, wifi

and the super friendly welcome was free).

We couldn’t help but compare this with the $35 mooring ball the other night.

Along the dock we chatted with a couple who had just completed

the Great America Loop.

They and another couple graciously included us in their champaign celebration.

Kathy and John,

thank you for including us.

Peg and Jim,

it was a pleasure meeting you all.

I hope we cross paths again someday.

Please keep in touch.

An just when we thought the day couldn’t get any better,

we had a visit to top all visits.

Two virtual MacGregor boat friends stopped by.

It was like meeting old friends.

Lance and Gary,

you made our day!!!

Sorry no pictures yet

 

And apparently I can put pictures on my Flickr account.

Not really sure how you will find me

I think my account name is happykay27.

The end of September

and the Indian Summer we have all been hoping for has arrived.

25 ° C

light winds

an invitation to join a friend on her boat…

…the smooth sailing Freedom 21…

…the proud Captain of her own universe…

 

…the raft-up at the sandbanks…
…a little boat picnic

 

…old friends, new friends…
….it’s what the sailing community is all about…

 

 

…back to the ‘Friendly Club‘ by sunset…

 

…the pale westward glow and a sliver of a moon to guide our way.
