Here was the first time I used this title.
America II looked resplendent bathed in a last burst of late afternoon sun yesterday.
She was one of several sail vessels out; here Pioneer seems headed over to a new loading point.
On a meteorologically different afternoon a few weeks ago, I caught Lettie G. Howard out headed for the Kills. Here was another spring when I caught Lettie under very bare poles.
No words . . . no gilding the lily!
Pioneer heads back to the dock.
Anyone know where Mary E is sailing from these days?
Thanks to Claude Scales for use of his Topaz photo. All other photos by Will Van Dorp, who has used the title “autumn sail” much more frequently. And if you have not yet read my article about sailing to Cuba last winter, you can read it here.
Here was 5.
Yesterday before noon I saw rain, sun, and then rain again. Afternoon was the same. The foto below of Norwegian Star I took at 16:06.
16:21 . . . a rainbow spanned from Red Hook Brooklyn to Newtown Creek Queens, although I couldn’t see the Queens’ leg.
16:35, and by this time I was again getting rained on.
16:44 and here comes the main act . . .
a rainbow spanning from Battery Park to
midtown, although I couldn’t fit it all on a single shot from the middle of the River.
then 17:26. Is that a sundog over Jersey City? Snow soon?
An hour later I was watching the moonrise but got no fotos. Check these out in the vicinity of the Mackinac Bridge here. And while AIS to try to identify the Wagenborg vessel in Ken’s post, I noticed someone off Sarnia who’d been in Bayonne only two weeks ago! Kongo Star! Check her itinerary here.
