Do you ever see any deer in those woods. I'd have to bring my .308 and snipe a few for the freezer.

Didn't the Atlantic Salvor take a bullet through a pilothouse window near NYC harbor awhile back???

Maybe mentioning rifles is a bad thing....

Yes it did. I wasn't on at the time. So if they were looking for me , they missed!

We see deer frequently. Lots of bald eagles too.

How far up river are you?

I truly wish I was there.

While I've gotten a lot of work done on the boat in warm/hot weather, I do miss winter and am sorry I missed out on one of the hardest winters in the NE in a long time.

Julie and I would certainly have driven to Niagara Falls to see them frozen.
