Tuesday morning started out cloudy, but soon the sun popped out with great light to try my new camera. Bouchard tugs, the bright RED ones, and other reds were on the move. Container ships and a RoRo loaded with new cars was also passing.

Sunday’s circumnavigation of Staten Island tour was a real treat. Although it was windy and a hurricane well off shore stirred up the water, no one was disappointed.

A highlight for me and I’m sure others was 2 Bald Eagle sightings, one over Shooters Island in the KVK and the other over Fresh Kills Park on SI’s west shore. There was a lot of traffic out on the water making for a good “Photo OP” day. Here are some highlights of the trip.
