June 19 . . . from the boardwalk after the parade, and (maybe celebrating solstice inland) nary a mermaid or seamaster in sight. An unidentified sloop plots a course between two outbound c-vessels. See frogma’s solstice on the boardwalk pix here.
June 18 . . . a McAllister boat heads past the World Financial Center after escorting in a cruise ship. Between the mirrored walls and sheathed in blue . . . that’s the state of construction on One World Trade. Does the name sound a bit like a commercial version of the Bob Marley song?
June 17 . . . crewman watches as Atlantic Coast pushes a loaded cement barge up the East River.
Earlier that day, the unit anchored in the Hudson; barge is Cement Transporter 5300 . . . clear enough.
Crewman uses telephone on the afterdeck of Adriatic Sea. That’s Jersey City in the background. A year ago, Adriatic appeared here.
Left to right: barge New Hampshire, Scott Turecamo, Mark Miller, and Americas Spirit. Fort Wadsworth lies in the background.
Ocean King looks to land on Pier 16 for a crew change.
I’ve never seen Ocean King (ex-David McAllister, Resolute, launched 1950) in the sixth boro before last week.

Happy Solstice. If you want more mermaids . . . let me know.
