I’ve seen another Penguin here already, but it was not part of this colorful fleet that I first traced to Croatia here . . . and grouped by their bear logo here.

No vessel–not even passenger carrier–is quite so distinctively colored.

Given their frequency here during winter, I think of the fleet (of which I’ve recorded more than half) as an uncommon seasonal indicator:  hungry bears coming to town . . . happens in the cold season. Name and placement on this vessel suggest the bear chases forever across all the seas–like Ahab–but never catches.

Assisting Penguin into port were Brendan Turecamo and

Margaret Moran.

Be on the lookout for more bear ships in the sixth boro.
