Am I in a time warp?
Yesterday was like stepping back in time. We’re not sure what the occasion was, but we had tall ships of all shapes and sizes pass us going in the opposite direction, and at the end of the day we ended up anchoring in front of Bannerman’s Castle. How cool is that!
And then today, just when we thought things couldn’t possibly get much better, we sailed, under perfect conditions, right past West Point, which was amazing. The scenery at this point on the Hudson is truly spectacular and I only wish I had a camera that could capture its beauty, but take my word for it, it is breathtaking.
But……the best part about today, without a doubt, is that we have hit salt water (or at the very least brackish water) and to honour this mementos moment we made a toast to the gods of the wind and the sea and thanked them for our safe passage so far and asked for safety for our travels yet to come.
Our internet connection is very weak at the moment so the pictures will come later.
