Sad he took the dog with him. I'm always a little nervous sailing under the big bridges on the East River. Got to pass under four of them. Some have Subway trains rumbling across. I keep thinking of all the metal bolts and nuts that could vibrate loose and do some damage as I pass under. Worst was cruising the Erie Canal
up near Schnectady. Had some youths up on the railroad bridge who thought it would be fun to throw some railroad ballast stones off of it. Luckily they missed.
