(Alec) Baldwinsville

The whole point of this post is to show this ridiculously good looking sunrise that I photographed while leaving Baldwinsville.  Tagline, “Just coffee, no filter”.


Sure, there are other cool sights (check out this old aqueduct!), but basically it’s a lot of…canal…and more canal.  They don’t call this “the ditch” for no reason.

Oh and here’s a shot of the janky set of pilings that we had to tie to in Rome, NY…we wouldn’t fit on the “nice” dock with our 55+ foot mast sticking off either end of the deck…


Good news is – we’ve basically crossed the halfway point!  As of tonight we are tied up to Lock 16.  Hopefully, if all goes well, We’ll be in the Hudson by this weekend!

Let’s hear it for New York, New York, NEWWWWWW YORRRRRRRRKKKK

    Well you are peeing with the big dogs now so you can’t hang at the schnauzer houses! (Little docks) Try to weather the storm as comfortably as you can…haha!

    Two questions:

    What the hell does “janky” mean??!!!

    Do you remember the episode of Seinfeld when Kramer swum in the Hudson??!! I think Mark needs to go for a swim in the Hudson!

    Of course there are also those infamous words of Sully Sullenberger “We’ll be in the Hudson”……it’s a famous river!!!

    Jealous of your adventures!
