I first devoted a full post to Marjorie B last winter, after seeing her be-rimed.  Here’s a foto from this morning, before 9 a.m.

Around 1030, Sun Round entered the KVK from the east.  That’s the mast of Colleen McAllister hiding behind the scow.  Here’s my post about Sun Round from over three years ago.

I wondered about this skyescort, and what tug

accompanied the Evergreen vessel through the Kill, congested with dredgers.

Marjorie B, thank you very much.  I believe that’s Tasman Sea approaching.

As it turns out, dredgers were only the start.  Over at the Bayonne Bridge end of the Kill, more traffic appeared.

Marjorie and other escorts did due diligence and

it was only another routine morning.  Sun Round always makes me smile:  I used to have it and Ellen McAllister on my business card.
