Now that we’ve arrived at our cousins’ house in Washington DC, we have sufficient bandwidth to upload a couple of videos from New York City:
We’re thrilled to no longer be in New Jersey, and EXIT is safely ensconced at Bert Jabin’s Yard in Annapolis having a short list of items attended to by Diversified Marine Services.
In the age of Teslas (and in the wake of the VW emissions test defeat-device scandal), diesel engines are beginning to seem like an anachronistic means of propulsion, but until marine hybrid-electric drives become mainstream, it’s what we’re stuck with. I want to make sure that this blog isn’t just a highlights reel and the past week was definitely one of the low points of the trip this far, a roller-coaster-like drop exacerbated by the fact that it came on the heels of a spectacular week in NYC and a cold, but otherwise great overnight passage down the coast of New Jersey.
Says Drew: “A hurricane hit New York after all.” He refers to Hurricane Williams, which landed at the 79th Street Boat Basin around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 11th and began a whirlwind tour of New York City that wreaked its own, unique path of destruction.
Today I was in a street dance* in NYC. One guy jumped right over my head and it was cool and they made lots of jokes (and cash) and I’m saying everything in one sentence which is cool and I hope you watch this video and then you will be happy but only if you watch the video which is funny and this blog post is only one sentence long which is cool and I hope everyone has a nice day.
We motored into New York on a gorgeous, sunny Sunday, down the East River and back up the Hudson. Soren set up another time-lapse video of the trip. (The GoPro ran out of batteries before we arrived at the 79th Street Boat Basin, but you can still see much of downtown, including the new One World Trade Center.)
