Sunrise on the last day of August: Comet heads south across the upper bay. Forecast is for the upper 90s.
By 7 am, it’s already getting warm; Evening Mist heads over toward Red Hook.
8 am Vale departs KVK, where Torm Sofia remains docked.
Here’s a surprise: farther into KVK out beyond Doris Moran and the barge Alexandra, that’s Amalthea, which I saw departing Philly last Thursday. (See third and fourth fotos from end of post here. )
Buchanan 1 pushes crushed rock into the Kills.
Around 930 am, Java Sea heads somewhere up the River with oil.
By 5 pm, the boro is stifling as an oven as Evening Tide arrives to move a barge out of Red Hook. In the center of the foto is the stern of the 1907 Pegasus; foto is taken from the interior of Lehigh Valley #79. Pegasus and 79 head up to Cold Spring, NY, on Friday.
My camera and I retire for the evening, but the traffic goes on and on.
