Day 2 of our trip home and our first lock

We had a mostly uneventful night anchored in Newburgh Cove except  when the anchor alarm went off due to the tide pushing the boat the other direction from the anchor from where we started.   The river current was flowing south but due to the tide was flowing north. The beautiful sunrise made up for that minor drama.

Our goal for today was to get to the Troy Lock north of Albany.  On the way there we went past numerous bridges and light houses.  We saw the Rondout, Saugerties, and Hudson Athens lighthouses.

After the Troy lock we tied up in Waterford at the town dock, behind a sailboat from bowers Harbor MI.  The Troy lock was the first of many we will pass through on the trip home.  Waterford is the beginning of the Erie Canal.
