Net catches off our dock from an afternoon in December. The new moon had produced an extreme high tide in the morning which knocked previously beached debris loose to be flushed out of the creek, past our dock and into the East River on the ebbing tide. We caught as much as we could on it’s way.

Somewhere a lawn nativity scene is missing an illuminated Joseph statuette. Rescued from the shores of Dutch Kills, he now graces our boat yard with other found icons. 

A maritime sign knocked loose from the North side of the Pulaski Bridge and retrieved from the water (see the South side of the bridge abutment with the same sign intact above). The numbers refer to the two common marine radio channels: 13 (bridge to bridge communication) and 16 (USCG monitored channel for general communications). Both could be used by a ship’s captain to contact the bridge operator.

We are not the only ones documenting (and removing) debris from the creek. On this day Riverkeeper came across two separate vinyl sheets used by a local lumberyard for covering wood. These large sheets pose serious hassle to motorized boats when they entangle a propeller - as happened to the Riverkeeper vessel earlier that week.
