With our first day’s travel north from NYC, we have traveled 5,000 miles on the Great Loop since leaving Holland, MI in September 2019!
After John and Katy left for Michigan, we untied R&R from the dock at Liberty Landing, idled out the channel into the Hudson River, and turned left.
The first few miles were all city, with boat traffic, ferries, and high-rise buildings. As we passed under the George Washington Bridge and then the Tappanzee Bridge (now known as the Mario Cuomo Bridge), the scenery changed to high rise residential, then suburban, then rural countryside with cliffs (the Pallisades) rising from the river.
Our destination for the day was Half Moon Bay Marina in Croton-on-Hudson, only 40 miles north.
We arrived with Loopers The Concession, Adventure Awaits, and Orion, and walked with the group to dinner at a nearby restaurant. It felt good to enjoy time with new friends. We expect to see many Loopers further north on the Hudson and then west along the Erie Canal.
