ON THE ROAD AGAIN
CONNECTICUT & NEW YORK
We took a little 5 day trip which included following the Connecticut River for a distance
to photograph a few fire boats. The trip then made way west and down the Hudson River
photographing a few more boats. We base camped in a hotel in Yonkers for a couple days
making several trips in and around New York City. A plan to go to a Red Sox at Yankee
Stadium game unfortunately did not come to fruition, but we saved considerable money
by watching it on TV instead. We also made our way out the north shore of Long Island
finding a few more boats and visiting the infamous 1938 retired FDNY fireboat "Fire Fighter"
It was a brief, mostly business visit to an amazing city and a safe trip home.
