New York, New York

Okay so here is a log of our actual miles and hours:

Counting our trip from Block Island to Point Judith, we have traveled a total of 235 miles in 54.5 hours!

We are currently docked at Newport Marina, in Jersey City, because our beautiful friend Dave had a free spot there (his boat is out of water)!  And we are staying in Dave’s amazing apartment in the East Village.  I got to run 5 miles along the East River on greenway paths, and wander the city taking pictures and seeing the community gardens that I really didn’t ever realize existed.  I loved seeing the creative and unique ways that humans have reached out to Nature in this city.  It’s really incredibly inspiring and I am filling with stories here and writing more than ever!

We are stuck here for a while due to way too much wind along the New Jersey coast…but I really can’t be disappointed.  New York is an incredible place to be stranded.

Pictures coming soon!
