Rob & Dana
Visit NY & Kayak on the Hudson River
22 August 2004
This was Rob's second time kayaking (first on the Hudson River and first time on SOT). This was Dana's first time kayaking ever. Both of them did great.
We put in at the Germantown boat launch and seeing that the tide was very low we headed south so that when the tide started coming in it would be an easy paddle back north. We took out at a park on the river we didn't know about until we stopped there for lunch. Cheviot Park on Cheviot Road. Not sure what the town or village is.
The river did have a surprise for us. The tide was out and even in kayaks I hit bottom a few hundred feet from shore. I have a picture of an immature bald eagle standing in the water over a hundred feet from the shore line. (But you can't tell what the bird is in the pic)
Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
