You’ve heard about Flat Stanley and Carmen Santiago?    So, let’s play . . . errant ferry, Staten Island ferry (SIf) in particular.  We’ve seen a SIF here, here, and here . ..  so thanks to Birk Thomas, enjoy these new installments.   Where is this?

Well  . . .  the location is the Chesapeake, and the answer is not really that vessel had chosen to go way offcourse;  rather, it’s that maintenance is done in Norfolk,  the result of bidding, I suppose.   And that’s Colleen McAllister doing the tow.   No matter how capacious the SIf’s appear when you are onboard, they seem to shrink

when juxtaposed with other traffic in the sixth boro.  Thanks to John Watson for this foto of a busy harbor;  foreground ACL is unidentified and the cruise ship is Crystal Serenity.

Thanks to Birk and John.  And now, I’m heading out to get re-acquainted with the sixth boro myself.    Remember . . . to vote for Pegasus/79 daily AND if you see an errant SIf, please snap a foto or several.

With 29.2% of the votes cast, 7 votes out of 24, the grand winner of the first caption contest is . . . Buck . . . whose caption was “The GPS said this was the fastest route!”  Great job, Buck, and thanks to all for submitting captions and to all of you for voting on them.

As fortune would have it, Capt. Allen Baker sent in a foto that lends itself to the second caption contest.  See below.  If the spirit moves you to send in a possible caption, please do.  I’ll put some up in a few days for a vote-off.

Click here for another  foto showing Colonna Shipyard posted last year.

So please, send in your caption either as comment or email, named or anonymous.

Thanks to Allen for this foto and to Buck for proposing the winning caption for our first contest.

By the way, I’m on Day 6 of my workshop on the Brooklyn waterfront, learning a lot, and having a blast.  Today it’s Coney Island.  Report later.  What’s happening today is unrelated to the parade  fun eight days from now.

Here’s a sneak preview of my work-in-progress.
