Note to Kees Kuyper . . . “your foto on page 18 here of New York from the bridge of Blue Marlin is fabulous! Please take more during your stay in New York.”
Note to all blog readers . . . scroll through to the top of p. 18 to see Kees’ foto.
What follows is another assemblage of fotos from yesterday’s unproductive loading of tugs and barges onto Blue Marlin, a few repeat fotos enhanced by Rod Smith of Narragansett Bay Shipping. Thanks, Rod.
Gabby Miller and (?) Nicholas and crews at 5:38.
By 8:39, Blue Marlin has swung with the ebb, as Staten Island ferry Alice Austen arrives through the Narrows. Now if you know anything about the ferry routes, this is unusual indeed, but Alice Austen may just be a contrarian ferry.
At 8:46 in the distance Maryland heads out the Narrows to bunker cutter moored in Gravesend Bay, while a night heron (aka “big pella’) contemplates.
By 11:07, more of Blue Marlin has re-emerged, and by mid-afternoon Monday, she has repositioned over to the mooring it occupied earlier off Owl’s Head.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who would love an email from Kees.
