Buchanan 12 light, under the same wintry sky.  The last time I saw the 12 was back when tugster last took a swimming day.  I’d love to see the high and dry hulls of Barney and Mary.

As I scrambled away from the train, Meredith C. Reinauer ruffled the glassy calm of the river at the Rondout  Light.  Here long ago the Delaware and Hudson Canal completed its 108-mile journey from coal country to what was then the fast river transport to sixth boro coal market.

And here waiting for me was my flesh-and-blood sister and brother-in-law and their Maraki, which they sailed around the world in the 1990s.  See their newly-inaugurated blog here.

This was an opportunity, to rediscover the Hudson Valley with them, after all we never see or step into the same Hudson twice.  I’ve seen Esopus Meadows light many times before, but

have never passed the volunteer boat.

When last I saw this “castle,” it was a Redemptorist retreat center, but now it’s something different.

It was gratifying to see the pilotboat John E. Flynn on station at Norrie Point.

The last time I recall seeing this house in Hyde Park I’d not sensed it would rival the other mansions there, like the Vanderbilt and the FDR (currently closed because of the shutdown! !@!@##) homes.

Maraki and Grande Caribe had last crossed paths on the Erie Canal.   More large sightseeing vessels on the Hudson soon.

Maraki had sailed under this first bridge when it was still a disused rail structure.

The Hudson Valley is a spectacular place.  More soon.  A version of it . . . in print . . . check out T. C. Boyle’s World’s End.

Here was 2, nearly three years ago.  I could also call this “some of the parts,” which is what I show . . . and you guess the rest.

We start with an easy one;  answer will be clear once you get through a half dozen or so.

The ladders are distinctive.

I airbrushed out the first name.

If you were out on the sixth boro today, you might know these next ones.

The gray one is Newtown Creek.

Not the same vessel as above.  Note the light at the Narrows far right.

Purrty sail!  And then the answers.

Top one was the schooner Pioneer.

Basuto     Now I want to know what the relationship is between Stolt and Unicorn . . .   And Basuto is a South African word.

And here’s the prize for putting up with my format:  America 2.0 heeling over in the stiff breeze of the Upper Bay this afternoon.

All fotos taken today by Will Van Dorp, who didn’t even expect to be here today.
