Kingston, NY and Croton-On-Hudson

We left Coeyman's Landing yesterday morning and headed to Roundout Creek in Kingston, NY. This is our fourth time covering this leg of the trip so there is little new and the run was unremarkable.

That said it is always nice to view the scenery along the way. Since we've blogged about this part of our journey in 2012 Mini-Loop I'll leave it at that.

Our night at Roundout Yacht Basin was unusual in that we were the only transients. At this point in the season, this is the low period between the northern migration of Loopers and the southern flow of Snowbirds.  Normally the docks would be alive with regulars and transient, but there were no mid-week over-niters, so we had the entire place to ourselves. It was so quiet. Not a sound, not  a wave slap, not a wake the whole night. A little like being home in East Haddam.

This morning we headed out to Croton-on-Hudson, 42 nm run through, what I consider, the best part of the Hudson River outside of New York City - the Hudson Highlands.

  1. Still following your travels, Thom & glad to see each post. Too bad you guys did your turnaround so far south on the Trent Severn Waterway, as you missed the most scenic parts!
    I hope you can at least catch up with my videos when you get a chance, to see the latest & greatest ;-)
    As for ourselves, we are enjoying our own extended cruise along the TSW & I am inspired by your blog. We are planing for an Erie Canal / NYC cruise ourselves over the next few seasons & I appreciate you sharing your highlights. The head's up on Watertown was greatly appreciated!
    All the best, Paul, AKA 'Boogabooster'
