Quick post on the 1st annual Atlantic Salt Maritime Fest.  Atlantic Salt brings salt from Ireland, Chile, and Mexico through the sixth boro to keep icy roads less treacherous.  Where salt made a huge mound in this winter post, today there was frivolity, free food, and lots of smiles.  Thank you, Atlantic Salt.  Below Half Moon and container vessel Sumida meet.


Kristy Ann Reinauer and Thomas Witte paraded past, and


as did  Rana Miller.  More Rana later; she’s quite similar to Guardian, posted here last winter.


There was singing, drumming, and dancing.


Did it rain??


No, problem.  Did tugster find friends?  Oh, this is getting frivolous.


Bowsprite took the foto above; all others by Will Van Dorp.  By the way, if you know the Where’s Waldo series, bowsprite is depicted in TWO of the fotos above.  Where’s bowsprite?

By the way, as of this writing, Flinterduin, the 15-masted motor vessel,  approaches 50 degrees west, due south of Newfoundland.  She should enter the harbor before Monday morning; I will do the math later to narrow the ETA.  Remember the foto contest.
