Earth Day 2010 7 foggy sunrise, the unit leaving Arthur Kill in the direction of the Bayonne Bridge   …  is

Davis Sea pushing DBL 26, a 28,000-barrel vessel.  Given the amount of influence Gaylord Nelson has had, it’s totally appropriate to refer to him here.

Foto compliments of Jed, here’s a different  sunrise in April, as enjoyed from the galley.

Volunteer, Adriatic, and Tasman, as seen from Mariner’s Harbor looking over toward Elizabeth, NJ, and St. Patrick’s.

Davis Sea, once again, following Atlantic Concert, headed for sea.

Tasman (ex-Ambassador), again shot by Jed.

Houma, as seen here six weeks ago.

Odin,

Baltic passing barge slung by Maryland.  No,  there’s no Maryland Sea, either globally or word Sea after Maryland on this vessel.

Ivory C . . .  Nah, I haven’t enough Wall Street experience to trick you there.

Fotos 3, 4, and 6 by Jed–who’s not returning to the sixth boro anytime soon, having found warmer water, calmer seas, and faster vessels with at least 30,000 more horsepower each.

Others fotos by Will Van Dorp, who will miss Jed as a neighbor in the boro.

Whatzit?  Is the foto inverted?  Answer follows.

The foto below I’ll call Ruth‘s wake.  I posted bronze last almost a year ago when Ruth arrived in the sixth boro.  Tuesday afternoon she galloped out of the KVK leaving this remarkable wake.

She galloped

throwing lots of splash as she passed.

So did RTC 26, guided along by

Jill Reinauer.

The spring sunlight of late afternoon threw all the right highlights and shadows on Nicole Leigh.

Here’s Curtis, again upper house counting stars or

something.  Maybe head-thrown back, laughing out loud?

Parting shot:  I’m glad I had not stumbled upon this sight from this perspective, or I’d still be wondering if it caught some new radar configurations.

I wonder if Ruth can do this.
