Here was the first post with this title, from almost 9 years ago!  But for the first image of Cheyenne, I can go back to February 2007 here.

Anyhow, less than a half hour after leaving the dock in Port Newark, she rounds the bend near Shooters Island,

departs the modified Bayonne Bridge,

exits the KVK for the Upper Bay and North River . . .

and a half day later, shows up in Poughkeepsie, as recorded by Jeff Anzevino and

Glenn Raymo.

Jeff and Glenn, thanks. Uncredited by Will Van Dorp.

And Cheyenne, tugboat of the year but not present then at the 2015 Tugboat Roundup in Waterford . . .  she’ll be there this year on her way to a new home a good 1000 nm to the west.  Here and here are my photos from 2015, which already seems long ago.  I’ll miss the Roundup this year because I’ll be eastbound on the waterways from Chicago, but there’s a chance we’ll pass Cheyenne on the way!!

Is she the last Bushey tug to leave the sixth boro?  If so, it’s a transition in an era or something . . . .

Safe travels and long life in the fresh waters out west.

 

 

Bananas.  An accident?  One waiting to happen?

Actually, besides being tasty and nutritious, they are a non-polluting lubricant to the rails.  All but the last photo here come from Jeff Anzevino, who captured  Thursday’s launch of the latest barge up at Feeney Shipyard on the Rondout up in Kingston.   Click here for some of Jeff’s photos used previously in this blog.

After the launch, the new barge was towed to owners along the Hudson by Fred Johannsen.  Click here for previous photos of Fred Johannsen.

I’m not sure who took this photo, which I took from Jeff’s FB stream, but it shows Jeff in the small green and white boat to the left taking the photo above.  The dramatic shot was taken from the Walkway over the Hudson.

Here’s Fred Johannsen light.

Many thanks to Jeff and to Mark for use of their photos, which iId seen on FB, which I know some of you don’t do.

. . . with some digressions . . .  .  The photo below of the procession leading to the Roundup comes from Jeff Anzevino.

Digress to the left . . . on the Troy (Lansingburgh) side through the trees is Melville Park and this sign and

this house.  If you’re looking for a good read about Melville’s later life on the waters off Lower Manhattan, check out this Frederick Busch historical novel.

Here’s another shot by Jeff, taken from the 112th Street Bridge.  You might recognize the crewman standing beside the wheelhouse port side.  There are many other posts with photos from Jeff, such as this one.

From Bob Stopper, exiting lock 27, it’s Roosevelt-late 1920s built-and Syracuse-early 1930s built.   Click here for some photos Bob –and others–sent along earlier this year.

From Jason LaDue . .  a photo of tender (?) Oneida taken in 2001.   Anyone know the disposition of Oneida?  Click here for some previous photos from Jason.

And finally, from Fred tug44 . . .  locking through E2  . . . right behind us.  I feel grateful to have an occasional view of self to post here.   Some of you have seen some of these on Facebook.

Thanks to Jeff, Jason, Bob, and Fred for photos here.

 

First, frogma put up a great post about Saturday, culminating for her in a ride on Pegasus.  Pegasus is as miraculous as a clear-headed 101-year-old relative, kind of like the remarkable woman whose 90th birthday I attended some years back in Pasadena.  The transformation Pegasus has lived is depicted quite well in this website.

She came calling at Whalen’s party (That’s Ellis Island in the background),

aaapg

she was part of OpenHouse New York,

aaapg2

she even participated in the Labor Day 2008 tug race.

And . . . could it be, Bonnie, the inimitable kayaker, now plies the waters of the sixth boro on Pegasus?   If so, bravo!!

Jeff Anzevino posted these shots of fotorazzi extraordinaire atop tug44 on his picasa page about the Waterford Tug RoundUp.  Jeff is giving a slide show in White Plains on Sept 15 (That’s THIS Monday)  at the “Color Camera Club.” For directions and program, click here.  According to Jeff,  his show will feature aerials of the Hudson River (Yonkers north to Columbia County), tugspotting photos he’s made over the past decade, and brand new NYC and Waterford fest photos.

I’m glad Jeff’s didn’t capture my expression just after Fred sounded his airhorns and I almost thought to dive for safety into the Hudson.

Below,  inside a Hudson River barge below, Jack Casey debuted rousing songs from his play called “The Trial of Bat Shea,” to be performed in Troy, NY, on Sept 19, 20.  For more info, scroll through the Renssalaer County Historical Society site.  Deft musicianship, rousing then haunting lyrics, unflinching emotional presence . . . that’s how I’d describe the pieces Jack played in the barge.  “… Bat Shea” tells a true story of a rigged election, unjust murder conviction, and callous execution of a man known to be innocent.  And Jack . . . hope you make a CD soon.

Also, coming up soon, it’s Riverkeeper’s NY Waterfest . . . a celebration of the sixth boro as a place to play and work.  Sept 28: 3rd annual Waterfest in New York City’s Battery Park City.   A day dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of the Hudson River to New York’s history, commerce, arts, and culture, as well as the sources of and threats to NYC’s drinking water supply.  Speakers, water sports, hands on activities for all ages, a green village and more!
