Winter Waterland

On Friday we enjoyed the sunshine at Kingston Point Beach. A beach in winter is a favorite outing for us.

Mathilda is now an exhibit at the maritime museum. She was built in Quebec in 1898, and spent many years working in Montreal Harbor and New York Harbor-- she was the oldest steam tug in operation (in the States) when she retired to Kingston in 1969.

Icebreakers in the distance. This is the Roundout Creek -- a tributary of the Hudson River. It was nearly 50 degrees on Friday, so it was a day of melting, and we enjoyed an extra extra long walk.
