We went to Half Moon Bay at Croton-on-Hudson, NY for a 2 week stay.
One of the best 9/11 memorials we have seen was just a short walk from our boat at Croton-on-Hudson. It was a sundial made from a recovered steel beam from the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Nine bronze medallions commemorated the sequence of events in the hours between 8AM and 4PM on September 11th, 2001. Very thought provoking!
There was quite a lot to see at Croton-on Hudson, and we got to try out a few good restaurants and historic Taverns for some good food and libations. We LOVED Croton Tapsmith – a Hudson Valley Craft Beer tasting room and wine bar. We visited Tracy Shea, the owner there at least 3 times during our the week at Croton-on-Hudson.
We had one mishap at Croton-on-Hudson : Local Postal Office lost a package we were expecting back at the boat. Can only hope this will show up in the next month or so and the dockmaster Steve will forward it on to us…
We left the boat for one of the weeks while we took a trip to Vegas.
It was Mary’s Niece Emily’s Graduation and her sister Hailea’s and husband Zac’s birthdays — Mike Logan (Mary’s brother) hosted a great cookout and pool party to celebrate.
We took a side trip to St. George Utah to see the play Annie at the Tuacahn Theater. This was really hot! Ann Logan went with us and we did get to have dinner and see Andrew, Jessica and her sister, Amanda.
After getting back to Croton-on Hudson, we took a 7-mile hike out to the Croton Dam and along the historic Aqueduct. It was quite a warm day, but well worth the views of the dam and lake.
