Here was 21.  22 .  .  . let’s call it shifting perspectives.

The name alone arrested me .  .  .  Sedna.   I used to refer to Sedna as my retirement plan.  Don’t know  Sedna?   Sea goddess.  Back then, I imagined that when I was too old to work or enjoy life, I’d get into my kayak and paddle seaward until I met Sedna.  I’m not being morbid;  it’s just the reaction I imagined I’d take to a diminished quality of life.

Funny thing, though, I googled the vessel below and learned she’d had her own near-encounter with the bottom recently.  Sedna Degagnes . . . we’re glad you’re spritely again.

Another great name . . . with a recent itinerary running mostly between the Gulf of Mexico and Scandanavia.   Moonlight Venture  . . . seems to  hint at subterfuge.  Brendan J. Bouchard is a vessel I can’t recall seeing much around the sixth boro.

And Baltic Merchant, another great name, though one that accurately reflects its itinerary.

All fotos yesterday by Will Van Dorp, who info above notwithstanding, is not morbid.
