I appreciate it when folks send in photos they’ve taken.  Sharing photos is one of the joys of the Internet. Here from Ashley Hutto, Mister Jim pushing five barges, upbound through the Highlands.  If you could swivel the camera to the right, you’d be looking at West Point.  I love the reality-defying lens. The next […]

I took the photo below a few months earlier in 2008, as the transfer from Normandy to Ross Sea was happening. Grouper has been featured here […]

Thanks to all of you who send me photos.  M & M McMorrow sent this photo taken at Atlantic Highlands just before Christmas.  And yes, Delta is the best Christmas red. I can’t seem to find a tugboat in the NMFS.NOAA registry called just “Delta.”   Someone help out? Richie Ryden took these photos just […]
