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.
More to follow… John Skelson

The KVK is busy these days, with all the cargo coming in; here’s some of the past weeks photos.
Sunday is the Circumnavigation of Staten Island, hope to see you there. Until next week… John Skelson
