As you can see the map shows a 7 mile plus row up the Hudson. I note the moon is high in the West. I hear a sound behind me and when I turn around I see a tugboat pushing a barge south inside the channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Q9ft667sxo .I love the sound it makes as it passes by. I continue north along the shoreline which will soon be well known as Quarry Waters (see https://quarrywatersparkinfo.org/). It is very quiet and beautiful. I stop and pull my boat in for a break and take note of the very clear water (I can see my feet!). On the way back I run into some SUPers who launched from Rhinecliff. They picked a splendid day to paddle the river! As I go back up the creek I see what looks like an eagle on the leafless, scraggly tree on the north bank of the creek. I am henceforth call it “Eagles Perch Tree”.
