Back in December, Ambrose went to the yard for a makeover, and John Watson took these shots.

Today, John got these, mere minutes ago, as they tangoed

Charles D. McAllister and Ambrose,

chico y chica

felizmente

como amantes en la primavera.

Big party is NEXT Monday evening.  RSVP!

Many thanks, John.

If “there are eight million stories in the naked city” (#58) and the naked city has six boros, then some 1.333 million stories are set here in the sixth boro . . .  aka the watery part that link the other five, and that’s why I devote time to this every day . . .  even though arguably … I don’t have a clue about the thousand-word stories in each of these fotos.  Why NOT wash the salt off Miriam Moran on a mild day?

Where is Bow Chain , one of Odfjell‘s almost 100 parcel tankers, headed at this moment . . . Sunday she was across from Sailors Snug Harbor, and Monday midday finds her outbound in the Ambrose Channel . . .

How many additional vessels has Kimberly Turecamo assisted since she helped Chang Hang Tan Suo rotate out yesterday morning?

What stories get told in the mess of Chang Hang Tan Suo?  or out on deck?

What waters has Viking traversed and

in what weather?

What’s being transferred here?

What vessels passed before

Monday morning saw SCF Provider leave port for Rotterdam following Chang Hang Tan Suo depart for St. John of Bay of Fundy fame.

And this story in only geographically related.  The KVK is about 100′ behind this marker on Richmond Terrace here just east of the restaurant previously known as R. H. Tugs.    Until very recently, a bronze (?) plaque listed names of Staten Island residents who served in WW2.  Yesterday morning the plaque was missing.  removed for cleaning or stolen?  And where/what is Livingston?  And what year has this been readied . . . given the second date?  Who knows?

All fotos yesterday by Will Van Dorp, who like everyone has a couple thousand stories that go untold.
