Two weeks ago, Sandy raged, leaving a deadly and disastrous trail through the sixth boro and surrounding land masses. Athena has also blanketed us, through many green leaves somehow remain on trees. Companies are attempting to return to routine. Ever notice how much the KVK channel zigzags, as seen here with APL Spinel tailing Meagan Ann and her scow. The strait’s not at all straight.
Sandy scoured away much of the volunteer vegetation along the KVK. A foto taken here a month ago would show lots of weeds and a quite living tree.
The absence of cover makes it easier for this hawk to spot the “shore squirrels.”
Storms eroding a beach sometimes uncover shipwreck (here and here) , treasure, skeletons . . . all manner of stuff. See the last foto here, taken about 20 years ago. The surge along one section of the KVK unearthed dozens of these bricks. Is Belgian Syndicate a local firm?
A fair number of government boats are still around, like this one . . . taking advantage of unseasonal warmth . . . and
Clean Waters, a Region 2 EPA vessel I’d heard about but never seen until yesterday. Given Region 2′s size, I wonder how many other vessels–I saw Kenneth Biglane once once and that was already three years ago–they have and where they’re usually homeported.
Wright and Kennedy (only the stacks are visible forward of Wright’s house) are still in town. Understandably, some folks I’ve talked to still live in conditions far from normal.
I’m guessing this train–unusual as it is– has to do with the completion of a job, not Sandy: Sea Bear tows a train of eight or nine vessels, including Iron Wolf.
Yet, recreational sail has returned. Sun Dragon is the nearer.
All fotos yesterday by Will Van Dorp, for whom the sixth boro is among other things an ever-changing puzzle.
I needed smiles so bad that I went through the past few months of fotos looking for cheeriness. And as I put these up, the sun broke through what feels like two weeks of mostly clouds. A sea lion, and
Yeah, and this goes out to Paul . . . I don’t know how you manage all those weeks on the job! Tomorrow I have got to get some R & R.
Meanwhile the clouds are back and Willie is in my ear.
Check out the light exactly two years ago . . . here. And my first greetings this morning came from the Easter ducks, who’d heard about an egg hunt, I believe. Mergansers passed too, but dove each time to hide bright colored bills.
Norwegian Gem, her bow painted like a post-modern Easter ovoid, sailed into a harbor entirely tinted with the rosy fingers of dawn, ending a passage from Cape Canaveral.
And two last beasts . . . unicorn and Oliphant . . . round out our marvelous menagerie
I took this foto at 15:40 yesterday, and I’ll call it “prelude to afternoon golden hour,” but this is a view of the turbine from the Battery Park direction. A few weeks ago, I recorded 18 minutes, so here’s more than twice that.
But first, bowsprite’s talked about her online art store for some time, and yesterday . . . officially, she launched it. Please traffic it. I wouldn’t want her till to look like the one I found along the KVK yesterday. See the jam-packed cash drawer below. Come spring it might be full of green.
I love it when traffic in the KVK is dense: here (l. to r.) Mediterranean Sea, Siberian Sea (?), Margaret Moran, and Cosco Tianjin. In the distance is Robbins Reef Light and the old Williamsburgh Savings Bank tower in Brooklyn.
With traffic this heavy, I can see bowsprite will be very busy drawing and sketching while the robots staff the store. Or maybe she could have robotos out sketching while she keeps the rust off her cash register?

Thomas D. Witte . . . I did nothing to manipulate this image, no liquification, no DAP . . .
Yet another Mighty Servant 1 foto with four movers of the Miller’s Launch fleet. As of this writing, the Mighty is still anchored at the Narrows. Bravo on what appears to have been a flawless loading.
Happy last day of Fall 2011.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp. And this just in . . . as of noon today, Mighty Servant 1 exited the Bay Nigeria-bound. I hope the good folks on Meagan Ann get a foto they will share.
