Yesterday, Betsy the kayaker and I had planned to take a trip. We were either going to paddle over to Hoboken to take part in another kayaker's Halloween paddle, or down around the Battery to Red Hook.
This is Betsy and her little red boat:
We got out into the channel and it was fairly obvious no such trip was occurring. It was just too windy and too choppy to get anywhere. Actually, it was a hell of a lot of fun, but not really the kind of surf condusive to trips.
So we decided to paddle across to the Newport marina just to hangout in their protected enclave.
Here are some more pics....
