One of my most popular posts ever was More Cargoes 7.  Since then, I scan the rows of containers looking for anything unique.  Tuesday in less than an hour, I scored on both vessels I saw.

Liftaloft units headed somewhere . . .

with or without tarps

a memorable ride lifting and dropping with ocean waves buffeting Maersk Missouri.

Not a half hour earlier,

Maersk Dolores came in

with a fleet of Cardinal pusher buses hidden among the containers, logo above the doors unmistakable.

Do you suppose those buses were taking

some kids on the field trip of a lifetime?  I’d have loved it.  Both my parents drove school bus and did lots of field trips but none through ports or involving such ferry rides, I recall.
