Really random means photos from widely separated places by different people. So here goes . . . the first two from Jed, who took them in the former Dutch Antilles about a year ago. Triton is home-ported in Ijmuiden, another must-see place in the Netherlands if you’re interested in workboats. Click here for some posts I did about Ijmuiden, the mouth of the waterway out to sea from Amsterdam. Click here for a photo of Triton I took a few years back in Ijmuiden.
Andicuri, named for a beach which itself is named for an Arawak chief, was built just south of Rotterdam in 1983.
Until about a year ago, Sand Master worked out of the sixth boro mining sand; recently it was sold to interests and was spotted–not photographed–in Surinam.
Here’s a strange photo taken in April 2012 by Don Rittner, and part of a post called “Jets Along the Mohawk.” Maybe I should have called it “early Cold War jets up the Flight of Five.”
And finally, here’s a photo I took in Beaufort NC in June 2013, Fort Macon tied up near the phosphate dock.
I hope you enjoyed these bounces within the northern half of the American hemisphere.
