I must be the last to join in tribute to our mothers, since that day was yesterday.  An important gift of mothers is that they feed us . . . milk and bread and  . . . broccoli.  But it’s true that we do not live by milk and bread  . . .  alone.  Everyone has stories about nurturing experiences mothers and everyone and everything else that provides nurture.  And  yesterday was that kind of day . . . a day to observe mother nature and feel –well–fostered.  Harbor II (1947, ex-Chas R Moore) in Erie Basin  before 7 a.m.

Anthony Miller, assisting Caribbean Princess as a goby would a grouper.

The Princess as well as  (near to far) Sassafras with DoubleSkin 303, Timothy L Reinauer with RTC 84, and Freedom Service with Energy 11105.

Small fishing boat with Sunny Williams with Anette  Theresa.

Cape Tilapia Talara,  named for a point in northern Peru, and a boom boat, preparing the tanker for departure.  .

Resolute, beginning Cape Talara‘s rotation (U-turn) in the KVK so that it’s reoriented from west to east . .  .

and nearing the end-of-rotation.

Oh the stories, all based on observation of mother water . . .  who with mother earth constitute mother nature.  Birk Thomas (center) telling some of those stories . . .  within the context of the sit-down portion of a Jane Jacobs walk  (ours in almost dead last scrolling thru).

Thanks, mom and moms.  All fotos by Will Van Dorp.
