Nevertheless, I made my rounds. High winds chill to the bone but no doomsday out here . . . Brian Nicholas pushed recycling into the Kills,
Catherine Miller moved semis beyond the end of the bridge,
Padre Island anchored off the BAT, taking time off from vacuuming the channels south of the Narrows.
Michigan Service headed for the Kills.
OOCL Kuala Lumpur shifted containers.

Six years ago, I put up this winter solstice post, led off by this fine foto . . . compliments of Richard Wonder . . . of an elegant John B. Caddell, recently lifted off a place where floating things should never go.

If anyone upriver has fotos to share, please get in touch.
