It's funny, isn't it, how the books we read as young children stay with us. The one book I remember is called "Little Toot." I believe it began "Little Toot was just a tug, a happy harbor tug..." Then he decided to go exploring and headed down a river. Anyhow, I hadn't really thought of that book for years, until I saw this small tugboat in Hempstead Harbor, coming back from somewhere, and the story in the book came back to me in an instant. There are a lot of larger tugboats in the harbor all the time, moving big barges carrying fuel around, but I have never seen such a small tug before.
