I was alarmed when the steam and flare caught my eye, but when I saw that silhouette to the left, I knew it might be a good morning to take some photos.

I was [finally] going to see Douglas J close up, Douglas J, ex-Mediterranean Sea for two companies and Donald C before that.

She looks impressive in that new Donjon blue paint.   Twice before I’d just missed seeing her, but “thems the breaks” when a person has limited time to come out and photograph while sitting on the dock of  . . .  somewhere.

As I said, the 110′ x 38′ 4800 hp Douglas J looks good in this livery.

Long may she work.

All photos yesterday, WVD, who has no explanation for all the flaring in Linden yesterday.
