Doubleclick enlarges.  My day went downhill from about 8:30 a.m.  Not that I had a miserable day; in fact, I got to spend most of it outside in 65 degree sunshine, but dawn has no rival, or

at least very few moments can top these, as sunrise brazes the Brooklyn sky and silhouettes Siberian Sea and Ellen McAllister.

With Maurania III, Ellen escorts in Atlantic Cartier.  Notice the crew readying lines on the ACL vessel’s “swim platform.”

Elka Delos prepares to depart the dock.

A tug-wannabe cruises past

Bow Clipper just ahead of Maria J.

Laura K goes eastbound, and then I

had to get to work myself.  All fotos this morning by Will Van Dorp.
