Watch a drone video of the Viking ship Draken leaving Kingston

Pete Kennedy shared another video from a drone focusing on the Viking ship Draken, which had been docked at the Hudson River Maritime Museum on the Rondout in Kingston since Friday. The boat was open for tours on Friday, Saturday and Monday, and on a Saturday visit, many people could be seen taking tours (along with the John J. Harvey 1930s-era fireboat, which came back on service on 9/11).

Kennedy had previously posted a drone video on Friday, when the ship arrived.

"The crew of the Draken Harald HÃ¥rfagre left Kingston this morning to begin their trip down to New York City," Kennedy wrote. "The weather was beautiful and cool, a perfect fall day for the trip. I wish them good luck on their voyage and thank you for making us a part of it."

The ship was a sight. I hope you had a chance to see it.

I didn't take the tour myself on Saturday. We had other priorities.
