It has been awhile since we sailed the Hudson. But we went out This morning at the 7AM hour. Stopped off at Riverside Cafe' for some jolt and a bun. Nice place but the prices threw me overboard. $3.49 for a 12 ounce coffee and hard roll.
Stewart House continues it's strange ways. They promised a cafe' sidewalk style along with inside seating and a farmers market. I saw the produce from a local farm at it was enticing. However the cafe' and market disappeared quicker than a mermaid on the high seas.
Here it is mid-summer and finally the weather co-operates and Stewart House is only open from 5-9 Wed- Friday. Quite often as well the outside river side bar is closed. Quite strange indeed.
Our mission was to procure some planking for Tropic-Al's BBQ up shore a bit. We succeeded in hauling in several pieces of driftwood that are now awaiting placement.
The trip took about three hours and about five land miles round trip.
