One thing about cruising is that you meet a lot of interesting folks doing, more or less, what you are. We been traveling the past few days with Ken and Terry on "Roundabout", a 42ft Grand Banks trawler home ported on Block Island. They are "loopers" on the first leg of a year long adventure. They lead the way today.
The Mohawk River is full of logs and debris and new sand shoals have appeared over night making cruising slow and exhausting.

One bitter sweet moment came when we arrived at Little Falls where we spent two day on the 2012 Mini-loop.
At the approach to the main building, there is a fountain where two years ago we snapped a picture of us with River and Ellie. Today it seemed empty.
Our thoughts immediately went to River, who is no longer with us, and while saddened, we remembered his smile and missed him.
