I’m studying Spanish with Rosetta Stone and enjoying new concepts.  “Anteojos de sol” is a Spanish word for “sunglasses,” literally “in front of the eyes, for the sun,”  which is fun to say, especially with the “j” pronounced as “h.”  In my area today, “no necesito anteojos de sol” because  it’s overcast gray.  Capt A. N. O’Nymous generously provided a sudden demand for “shades” which I pass along to you.

Warming up?  Reaching for your anteojos de sol?  Drop a few ice cubes in that coffee?

Take a dip after work?  Istria looks pretty pretty for a 45-year-old Italian vessel gussied up in the colors of the house of orange, eh?

Less colorful and bright . . .  but I’ll keep the sunglasses on . . . it’s Trafalgar, ex-Lady Alma of the Humber, although I haven’t found a launch date.

Many thanks to Capt  O’Nymous for these bright treats.

I’m always interested in collaboration, especially if any vessels previously working in the sixth boro turn snowbird and head for the tropics.   Come to think of it, Nieve Pájaro

might be a new identity just aching to emerge from this Bronx river icebound Osage.
