Gray day, gray water, gray sky, gray bridge, grayish black barge, gray upper wheelhouse . . . .  I just had to saturate that patch of bluish cloud.

I’d seen Susan Rose on AIS with Normandy as escort, and I figured that meant she was pushing a barge, a loaded barge.

You can see where the old identification has been painted out.   RCM must be Rose Cay Marine . . . ?

 

The yellow patch “under” the ladder really pops.

 

And she’s headed upriver. 

All photos, WVD, who has a busy week ahead.

By the way, my first photos of this boat appeared here in 2019.

 

This Bob Hill OT/B creation juxtaposes well with the ever-changing skyline of lower Manhattan, as seen from the East River.

Meredith C. is timing her eastbound trip with a fair tide through the Gate.

Catching the same tide, it’s Evening Star.

Farther SW, Gracie M. makes her way around Bergen Point.

Evening Breeze is a Bouchard new build, only recently arrived here.

On this sunny morning, Janet D pushes a Hughes construction barge past

an inbound scrap bulker.

And in closing, notice the soft spring colors of the trees along the KVK as

Dylan Cooper pushes her barge into the Upper Bay.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, whose energy level is rising along with the outdoor temperatures.
