But first, some odds ‘n ends.  It looks like this is the same inflatable that appeared in the squall fotos here a few days back . . .    Also, it appears that the destination for the cattle transported by Shorthorn Express is Bandirma, Turkey, a hundred of so miles southwest of Istanbul.  Further, in the wee hours into this Sunday, Angus Express may arrive in the sixth boro, although I’m not sure sunrise will still find her here.  Can a Jersey Express be far behind,  not that Jersey would suggest similar bovinity.  And given this list, over 900 cattle variety names are waiting for adoption by this fleet.

VHF mention of Grey Shark “bound for sea”  thrilled me yesterday;  I’d caught glimpses of her several times, the earliest about four years ago here.  And I’d seen vehicles lined up on various quais waiting to load her, but I’d never seen her loaded before.

She’s (ex-Fast Navigator) not that old, but

she certainly needs some paint, especially

forward.

Her visible cargo is

an assortment of cars and trucks all bound–I believe–for Saint-Marc,

Haiti.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who found these stories interesting in the NYTimes this morning:  Hudson River sewage, Bronx River baptism, and Herkimer “dig-yer-own” diamonds.
