I went for a paddle in the Hudson up to the little park where the parrots used to live in Edgewater.
It was a windy day. We left about 1.5 hours after high water from Pier 66 and even though we had good current the wind made us work pretty hard.
By the time we got near Mitsuwa the current was ebbing.
We took a little break at the park in Edgewater where the parrots were, but the whole place was under construction and there were no parrots, maybe they all froze or had their nests chopped down. Also see on the web that the power company took their nests down a year ago. I guess I'm out of it...
It was a nice day to be out, and we had a quick ride home, even though the wind had changed a bit.
Truth: To make something nice you often have to make a mess.
