Starting January, I will be living in Manhattan for a very reasonable price with my friend Ursula. I was able to extend at this hospital for another 13 weeks. This new place will be much closer to work. It will be a relief to not have to have such a long commute to work and back. It will be one train ride instead of 3. Plus I started working 4 nights a week instead of 3. You think 3 really isn't much. Its not really, but since I started 4...well 4 is hard work. Much more exhausting.

(this is the whole picture)
I am getting a new boat. The 26 Contessa is a foot smaller than the Catalina. It has a full keel, and more stable in structure. Basically it is better for more off shore cruising and set up better for a single handed sailor as myself. I pick her up in April. She is way up in Newfoundland Canada.
The Catalina is now on the hard, emptied, cleaned and ready to be sold. She has treated me well. I will miss her...

You can hardly see it but there are a bunch of burial markers. Also, you cant see it in the picture but there were these vent type pipes coming out of the ground like they have at landfills. I have read a few different ways the buried the bodies. But the general idea is each body gets a coffin and they stack a few on top of each other.

This past Sunday we (Dad, Mom, Carly and Maggie) took "Dances With Wind" for a trip to the Statue of liberty. Its a good way to see NYC. Its just a differant view and new perspective. Dad took the helm on the way out, we had a little lunch while puttering around the statue and headed back to City Island. It was a good trip.

Last week I did a little site seeing/geocaching. I had been wanting to check out the George Washington Bridge which at one point I had anchored near while on the way to City Island. The GWB connects NJ and NY. It is a mile long and it sways when you walk on it. I took the camera, of course, since bridges are usually a good subject for photography.
This is looking south. NY on the left, Hudson River in the middle and NJ on the right.
While searching for caches there were some great views of NY along the trail/cliff I was following.

My hammock!!! It was getting to windy and cold out to sit in it any more for the day. Before I took it down I noticed how cool it looked when it caught the wind.
