I stole away before sunrise the other day.  I needed to see a sunrise outdoors in a place I liked.

The effect of light and shadow on some painted, some corroded and textured surfaces was just stunning, so stunning it raised the assessed value on my Hooverville shelter by the water.

The crews on Conti Lyon and Doris ran the line

Given the rust and scale, I wasn’t surprised to learned Conti Lyon (ex-CMA CGM Baudelaire) was built in 2001.

 

That way the 118′ loa 4610-hp tug could move that box ship exactly where it needed to go.

Kirby worked the stern.
