Hudson Quadricentennial Armada

As part of the quadricentennial celebrations, a motley flotilla of historic recreations – the Clearwater, the Onrust, and the Half Moon – arrived at the Rondout in Kingston last night, accompanied by booming cannons, blaring ship’s horns, and posturing local politicians. Unfortunately, I only got a decent shot of the Half Moon.

Part of me wanted to jump up on the stage, grab the microphone, and propose to the assembled crowd that we board the boats, sail north, and storm Albany, demanding that our idiot elected representatives either do their jobs or resign.
