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.

Bavaria made an attempt to get out to sea.

Nor Gem shrinks the closer she gets to Manhattan’s passenger terminal.

Sea Lion (1980) heads Jamaica Bay bound to deliver a crane.

Buchanan 12, (1972) herself made over and painted anew for an Easter parade, enters the east end of the KVK.

Pathfinder charges forward between MOL Express and Overseas Atalmar.  Express left the Panama Canal 12 days ago, and will spend next Sunday in Europe.

A mariner stands watch.  What I’d give to be able to tell you his name, history, and his thoughts as he heads for sea on a Sunday morning . . .

And two last beasts  . . . unicorn and Oliphant . . .  round out our marvelous menagerie

I hope you enjoy this day . . . All fotos by Will Van Dorp.

Fog . . . it’s fickle, patchy, and blinding.  Even with radar, I imagine it causes stress.  Count the tugboats below.  Follow the lights and you get two:  Patapsco and Wicomico from right to left.  Easter morning 645 am at IMTT.

Same place, 745.  I think the vessel is Maryland.

Same location.  800 am.  Meagan Ann, whom you saw here in snow now just barely a month ago.  Fog forms in warm land air (75 Sunday) over cold water.

Patapsco over by LaFarge silos (now fog-shortened) near Hess Bayonne, as seen from IMTT.  830 am.  Note:  Hess Bayonne is less than a mile to the east of IMTT, where earlier fotos were taken.

Eastbound Ivory Coast at IMTT.  900 am.

Westbound Ivory Coast, near Hess Bayonne, at 930 am, half an hour later than the previous shot.

Eastbound Stephen Scott, near Hess Bayonne, around 940.

A minute later, as vessel approaches the St George ferry terminal.

Westbound  tanker Ionian Wave, escorted by Brendan Turecamo just before 1000.  Note the Monitor-like appearance of the Staten Island ferry.

About 1001, Ionian Wave and Brendan Turecamo emerge from a fog bank.  Normally, the Manhattan skyline would be visible.
