Today I am a Time Traveler with a Camera... Tomorrow, who knows

NYC Lights

After a huge day today and 4 long or short months, I sit on the beach staring at the lights of New York City.  It was a fantastic day that has ended with a picturesque sunset.  Tomorrow I make the crossing and head up the inside of the city and then out to the back side of Long Island.  The Atlantic has not disappointed me and I look forward to the next phase of this epic paddle.

On a down note, it does appear that the lovely dock master who dragged my loaded kayak out of the water, up a boat ramp, and over some stones did indeed put a structural crack in the boat.  I had felt water coming in over the last day or two and then tonight, unloaded the boat and flipped it over.  Sure enough, there it was, all the way to the fiberglass on one side.  I am a little concerned because of the location of the crack, almost running in line with the rear bulk head.  This may prove challenging to fully repair, so we shall see.  Somewhere in the next week or so I will have to get it out of the water and do the repair.  Lesson, make sure the dock master knows why your boat is tied up to the Kayak Only dock....
