|The Half Moon Bay Marina|
We have reason to pause. Up river there's been a bunch of loopers not moving. They are (or recently were) waiting for the waterways to Lake Champlain to open. Due to high waters, which made the locks there troublesome, authorities have kept the waterway closed. That meant us boats down south might have trouble finding spaces to stay given the backup. It opened just yesterday. We think within the next few days everyone will move along.
The Hudson River Valley is beautiful. No reason to rush that.
But mainly, we're out of the "run when the weather is good" pattern we've been in since we left Norfolk. All that open water (Chesapeake Bay, Delaware Bay, Atlantic Ocean) made travel a must on beautiful days. Given the smaller water, we can go when it's a bit windy or rainy, and enjoy the nice weather at a location for a change.

one of my favorite shows... COLBERT!
