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.
