The temps are still in the 90s, but at least today there was a strong southerly breeze.
Today was a workday! Ron washed the boat, which was covered with muck from the locks and lots of spiders and webs.
There is a very nice Laundromat just a few blocks from here and I took advantage of it and did several loads. After returning from the laundromat, we headed for the grocery store across the Hudson River (1/2 mile away).
Hannaford's Grocery Store allows boaters to bring a carts back to the marina. The carts have an electronic lock on the wheels and cannot normally leave the parking lot. In order to take a cart, one of the employees accompanies you to the edge of the parking lot and then uses a scanner to de-activate the lock.
Ron pushed the cart back and I got a few pictures. Some Facebook friends wondered if he was homeless:)
We had dinner at the Angry Penguin, fish and chips. Tomorrow is supposed to be a stormy one, so we will probably be confined to the boat.
