And here’s springtime 2019.  Might this be the last view I get of tug Viking?  Scuttlebutt’s bumped into me saying so. Her first (I believe) appearance on this blog was […]

Stephen B heads light westbound about to pass under the Bayonne Bridge, as Mary H, especially busy during the cold times of the year, pushes some petroleum product in the opposite direction.  Soon leaves will decorate Shooters out beyond her.

Take a camera and an hour and a half, hang out at some point along the KVK, if it’s cold then bring some hand and boot warmers and a thermos with hot tea, monitor the scan function on your hand held, and wait.  Soon there’ll be some traffic. Snap away. Winter is a better time […]
