The summer of 2023 in the Hudson Valley was relentless—a trifecta of Canadian wildfire smoke, oppressive humidity, and scorching heat. It was a challenging time, especially for someone like me, a devoted biker and boater. Every time the weekend beckoned for an escape on the water or a ride through the countryside, the weather seemed determined to play spoilsport.

One weekend, the need for a break became too pressing to ignore. My wife and I decided to head down to the marina, hoping for a moment's respite on the boat. As we arrived, the air hung heavy with smoke, the humidity clung to our skin, and the sun beat down unrelentingly. Despite the less-than-ideal conditions, we shrugged off our reservations and set sail.

As we navigated out of the marina, the sun struggled to pierce through the haze. About a mile upriver from the marina stood Esopus Light, a lighthouse with its own charm. As we approached, a mesmerizing sight unfolded—a rainbow began to form as the sun's rays cut through the smoky veil, illuminating the lighthouse in a surreal glow. The combination of smoke, humidity, and the lingering haze in the Catskill Mountains' valleys created a unique atmosphere.

Captivated by the peculiar lighting, I hastily grabbed my camera and managed to capture a shot of the rainbow casting its hues behind the lighthouse. The scene was otherworldly, a moment frozen in time. Buoyed by this unexpected beauty, we continued our journey upriver, but alas, the haze persisted, obscuring our surroundings. Disheartened, we turned back toward the marina.

Yet, the day took an unexpected turn for the better. Back at the marina, we ran into some friends, and what started as a quiet day on the boat transformed into an impromptu barbecue gathering. Despite the challenging weather, the camaraderie and the surreal beauty we witnessed at Esopus Light turned a potentially disappointing day into a memorable one. In the midst of the summer's trials, nature's unexpected display and the warmth of friendship prevailed, leaving us with a day worth cherishing. . Production and Shipping Time:
