Entering New York

After a night at anchor we got underway and headed for the big Apple.

The harbour was busy with ships, ferries, tug & barges and all the recreational boats as well.

New Jersey Coast

Following a pleasant stay in Cape May we then set off to the north. The New Jersey coast can be a rough and we had a plan to call in at Atlantic City (Lois was going to spend all the cash at the casinos).

However the sea was calm so we continued all the way to Sandy Hook Bay south of New York and anchored for the night.

Atlantic City, as close as we got, the money was safe!
