We are safe and well.
Anchored in the Mohawk River in a small tributary alongside the Erie Canal.
Freedom Park is alongside with the small town of Scotia, and has a small town dock where we can get ashore. Unfortunately they only allow 3 days alongside, but we are very happy and safe on the hook, 100m from either shore.

We will spend a few weeks here, chilling and waiting for the Hurricane Season to move along before heading down through the last 7 Lock into the Hudson River. Locks close on 10 October, so that’s our deadline for moving south and closer to the coast.

I write this as Hurricane Florence is coming ashore as a Cat 2 Hurricane. So thankful we are not in her way. Our thoughts and prayers for those in her way, both for life, homes and boats.
