This time I’ll do it differently, as post –more or less but close–the first and last photo I took each month, starting below with Buchanan I entering the Narrows on January 1 not long after sunrise.
And I won’t mention each date, but this was January 28 just before midday, Durance entering the KVK with Laura K Moran taking the stern.
Winter sees fishing boats like Eastern Welder in the Upper Bay, adding to the regulars in the anchorages like Asphalt Star and Emma Miller.
If you’ve forgotten how cold it stayed throughout the month of February, here are two photos from just off the Battery

James Turecamo ushers in March, actually that was March 6, and there’s still snow on the ground.

Let’s do an anatomy of wakes on a curve called Bergen Point. That’s Marion Moran on the stern quarter, a New Jersey State Police boat overtaking on the port side. Click here to see a now/then foto of Shooters, the island just beyond the container vessel.
