Getting these photos was quite an adventure for me. When
we reached the parking lot at
the beginning of the path to the lighthouse, the Hudson River
had flooded the path.
Bob didn't want to walk knee deep in uncharted waters, but I
took off my shoes,
slung my cameras around my neck and started wading. It was quite
a way and for most of it
I couldn't see lighthouse or path. I just knew it was the path
by the brush and grasses on either
side of where I was walking. The water was cold and mud
squished between my toes.
I was a little worried that there might be something ALIVE down
there with the mud.
Finally I got to the lighthouse. If I remember I had my
shoes and put them back on.
From the angle of the path I couldn't get a good photo. It seemed it
was all for nothing.
The docent felt sorry for me and hailed a family in a boat to
take me out further to
get a photo at a good angle. Then they volunteered to take
me to land.
However the place they put me ashore was some distance from
where Bob was.
He had been waiting well over an hour, maybe two and was getting
By the time I got to the parking lot, he was taking his shoes
off, getting ready to
wade and look for me. Bob HATES going barefoot or wading
he must have been really worried.
