Creek: Rondout 3

Today’s a good day to complete my Rondout Creek post, begun here. Three bridges up the Creek leads you to Feeney’s Shipyard, a quite busy place.  Last Saturday when I was there, two Vane Brothers boats and Johannsen Girls–the shipyard tug I believe–were docked.   Click here for a photo of the Girls nine years […]

Creek: Rondout 2

I’m skipping over many miles of my road;  although I took photos, they would fit into a blog about watersheds and Poison Sea-to-Palatine history–which I haven’t created–more than here. Here was the first installment . . . almost a decade ago, September 2009.  Of course, the Rondout has figured in many blog posts listed here. […]

Gallivanting to the Rondout

In the drizzle, BBC Alabama awaits cargo in Port of Albany. Pocomoke transfers cargo, Brooklyn heads south, Hudson Valley sentinels keep vigil no matter how much rain falls, Doris hangs with Adelaide, as does Coral Coast with Cement Transporter 5300, Strider rests from striding, Union Dede docks at a port that 10 years ago was […]

Ice Breaking on Rondout Creek

The five-minute video at the end provides the sound:  violent and jarring.  But first, try to conjure up what you think you’ll hear from the following images.  Remember, double-click to enlarge x 3 an image. Air temperature  at the Rondout this morning registered a scant seven degrees at daybreak.  Morro Bay, heading north on the […]

Creek: Rondout

Second in this series, this post attempts to captures quick details on Rondout this weekend, venue for the latest Working on Water (WOW) festival.  Rondout, a creek I’d love to spend much more time on, enters the Hudson about 80 miles north of  the sixth boro, strictly delineated.  The word may be a corruption of […]

Retro Sixth Boro 22

Happy 2020, so let’s go a decade back, and see a selection of photos from January 2010. Ross Sea escorts Rebel eastbound past Atlantic Leo in the KVK. Lucy Reinauer, bathed in morning light, approaches Howland Hook in the AK. Miss Gill and Lucky D head for the smaller Bayonne Bridge and Goethals Bridge, off […]

Last Monthly Photos 2019

For your quick peruse today, I offer the inverse of yesterday’s post:  I went to my archives and selected the LAST photo of something water-related each month of 2019. So if that photo was a person or an inland structure, I didn’t use it;  instead, I went backwards … until I got to the first […]

…aka backwards to Montreal, reprising the trip in reverse order before I return there, which I’ll do in a little over a week. We departed the Rondout in late afternoon, bound for the sixth boro.  It’s always interesting to see what floats near the mouth of the Creek . . . as an example the […]

Retro Sixth Boro 12

March 2009 . . . Stephen Scott here passes Port Ivory, near my old job, pushing RTC 70.   I’m still looking for Stephen Scott photo is her new profile, sans upper wheelhouse.  Port Ivory was an intriguing place name for me when I first moved here;  once a North Shore Branch of the SIRR […]

Retro Sixth Boro 9

I’m rushing December, but I’m eager to get through winter and back to spring.  All photos here date from December 2008. Bowsprite took this from one of her cliff niches:  June K (2003) here is moving the Floating Hospital  (1974, Blount) up to the Rondout, where she remains. Is she really now called Industria at Sea. The geography […]
