This is a view of JR’s harbor mouth as seen from Copacabana on a foggy winter’s morning. Note the silhouette of the vessel entering.
Running in and out the harbor’s mouth all day is dredger Xin Hai Niu, above seen at sunrise and below seen in late afternoon from inside the harbor at Flamenco Beach.
Here’s a wider view of the mouth as seen from the inside . . . as unidentified Bram and Camorim vessels enter.
A government vessel at the mouth.
Laurindo Pitta (1910) stays inside.
A pilot boat enters . . . again Santa Cruz in the background.
Complement to Santa Cruz on the west side of the mouth is Forta da Ilha da Lage.
