Footnote: last Sunday I took fotos of APL Indonesia as it exited the east end of the KVK for sea. Last night . . . i.e., seven days later, I took this “screen grab” of the same vessel standing off the Panamian port of Colon waiting to enter Manzanillo port!!
See the crewman on the bridge wing looking up? What’s he monitoring?
and now she’s headed for a portal that turns 80 this month, the Bayonne Bridge, dedicated on November 13, 1931. For the next 46 years, vessels passing here like Suez Canal Bridge–escorted by Maurania III and Amy C McAllister–could say
