I had several “pink” posts, but let’s go with the official designation of the hue, magenta.  Magenta, believe it or not, is a term for the created color derived from an Italian town where a significant battle took place in 1859!!  How’s that for obscure.

In June I caught ONE Hawk (again) and ONE Munchen.

Yesterday brought in another pink sorry magenta vessel, ONE Hangzhou Bay, that body of water that separates Shanghai and Ningbo and can be crossed via the 22-mile bridge that opened in 2008.

 

Miriam delivered the docking pilot,

 

while Kirby and James D. stood by.

Hangzhou is also noteworthy as the southern terminus of the Grand Canal, the thousand-mile water first designed and worked on over 2000 years ago, completed over 1400 years ago.
