Ok… I’ll admit it: I’m spending too much time indoors looking at photos from last summer. Winter without snow is getting to me. Alice has abandoned us for the Gulf. Any idea when she’ll be back through here?

I miss being on the Hackensack and seeing the egrets feed in the tidal flats over by Snake Hill.



I miss boat projects like the tug Buffalo (sans name boards) between tug Waterford and the bulkhead. Any updates on engine restoration?


Call this a pair of colored plumes on Flag Day last June. The East River ran red and blue. Anyone know what they use to dye the water?



And this pair of cranes over by the threatened graving dock in Red Hook, I miss seeing them from the water. Will they be there in summer 2007?
