Gowanus Canal to Buoy #9

August 28, 2005

Because of yesterday’s wreck, Andrew offered to take me out in his boat, instead of our proposed trip.


Signing in at The Gowanus Dredgers Boat House.


Oil in the canal.


We made it out to bouy #9,


and came home after dark.


Here is Andrew reading from his Captains Log; a log he keeps of all the trips he takes in his canoe.

Today’s entry in the Captain’s Log:

80ƒ overcast


with Marie Lorenz

Marie read the tide charts. We had calm water the whole time. Very few boats in harbor so we went straight out, my first time reaching Buoy 9 (the edge of Bay Ridge Flats). Returned right at sunset. Smooth trip.
