It was the first warm day kayaking for the year, and the first day I paddled without a dry suit all winter.

We went from Pier 96 on the Hudson down to Valentino Pier in Red Hook. We picked-up some lunch in Fairway and lounged around the beach then headed home. We made a pit-stop at the new Pier 26 site where they will hopefully be building a boathouse in a year or so.

This ship the Mystic Whaler might be the same one that my grandfather did a trip on when I was a young boy. I need to ask my Mom about it. I forgot my watershoes, so I had to wear my old drysuit shoes which I found at the boathouse.
