Here was 17.  Short post today, with one foto only from l’amica dalla torre,  who treats me sometimes with sights my eyes miss.    Like this vessel below, which showed up on AIS as Ocean, but


in fact is known as Ocearch.  Here and here are some links to its organization and mission.  Here’s a link showing a great white on deck.

I’m no idea why they’re in the North River.  Maybe they heard this vessel (fourth foto)  had been in the sixth boro?

My plan this morning had been to get fotos if an assemblage of Miss Emily, Miss Gloria, and Charleston were still in Gravesende Bay, but by daybreak, they’d disappeared, at least from AIS.

L’amica . . . grazie.
