We motor sailed down the Hudson River, past the Statue of Liberty and into NYC. It's always amazing to see the city from the water. The boat traffic is almost as bad as the street traffic in New York and you have to stay out of the way of all the ferries, barges, freighters and pleasure boats that are traveling on the river. Crazy to see people speeding around on jet skis in all this traffic, must be like riding your bike in the busy city streets.

Of course we would have a page about eating - Tony's passion is sailing, mine is  food! Some of the happiest times are sharing a meal with those we love. There are so many new foods to try, recipes to share, cultures to explore and meals to sit down to with friends old and new. Looking forward to the journey! ​Stay tuned.....
