Along this stretch of . . . bird habitat, Meow man has signed in . . .
and an official boat might just be verifying the authenticity.
Meanwhile, I’m just over two miles off the center of the VZ Narrows bridge . . . doing some of my own verifying. Those round objects . . . half a dozen of them . . . are they . . .
. . . could they be . . see that one splash . . .
harbor seals? This one seems to negotiate for that rock with . . . a ruddy turnstone . . . ?
See the press release here for the NYC Audubon tours here.
Read here about the seal scientists who were on board yesterday also.
What is that canoe-shaped object in the upper left side of this photo?
Anyhow, forget about the cold and book a seal and bird tour . . . on only a few Sunday trips left.
All photos by Will Van Dorp. Nearly three years ago I reported on a seal I interviewed on Fire Island.
Somehow . . . don’t ask me how . .. meow man seems to have “signed” what used to be a white ceramic mug that usually occupies my desk. How DID he deliver that? . . . !@#@!!
A laker (or ex-laker) in salt water . . . now that’s a thought that delights me, although I admit the foto is less than mediocre, but it’s Pioneer. Quite a few salties ply the Great Lakes. Note the characteristic self-unloading gear midships. She looks to be a sibling of M/V Ambassador, which last appeared here about two years ago. Since I took this foto, Pioneer has shuttled up to Halifax and is now southwest bound again, for Portsmouth, NH.
Eddie Carroll, one of the scow’s transporting spoils from the dredging at the north end of the Arthur Kill looks in need of some paint, although the scaly rust does give character.
Here’s the first of recent sights to behold: Meagan Ann towing scow Witte 4001 all the way through the KVK.
Witte 4001 has the cubic yard capacity of at least 40 dump trailers. Mary Alice . . . near the Bayonne Bridge . . . moves a scow alongside.
Weddell Sea pushing 2004 Senesco-built DBL 83 (ex-The Patriot),
sternview of the classic 1967 YTB-793 known to most around the sixth boro as Ellen McAllister,
at least three tugs (I believe . . . Margaret Moran, Laura K. Moran, and Ellen McAllister) and two container ships (Italy Express and MOL Endowment) entering port. As I pot this, MOL Endowment is passing St Pierre et Miquelon, and Italy Express–also Europe-bound–is not that far behind.
another stern view, this one of 1980 USACE Gelberman, built in Arkansas,
Maria J moves a barge over toward the Gowanus, while Lucy Reinauer awaits departure for Baltimore,
The list could go on, but I’m out of time once again.
