Day 7 away from the sixth boro had found me quite desperate.  I’d started to see tugs everywhere although of an unfamiliar sort:  carved into quartz monzonite,

on road signs, and

even along the South Carolina/Georgia state line on my road atlas !

So imagine my joy today when I finally met face-to-face longtime friend of the tugster blog, JED, who  invited me onto C-Tractor 12 to see

tugs at work doing what could never be seen in the boro up north where supposedly I carry the title of mayor.  Here in the St Johns RiverC-Tractor 12 and C-Tractor 5 assist USS Klakring (FFG 42) as it heads for sea.

More from Mayport soon.  Many thanks to JED for the tour.
