10 was just over exactly a year ago, and my first “fog” post fotos were taken over six years ago here. This autumn dawn brought fog and horns . . . horns that could be heard, with echoes, and felt. Eukor Morning Conductor seemed asleep to shore folk
as Anna L. Miller motored by.
On the KVK, Gage Paul Thornton chugged to an appointment as Bow Summer , which I last saw in springtime Panama, made all lines fast.
Mary Alice towed more Kills bottom out to sea.
Finally, the loudest and deepest horn came into view.
attached to Americas Spirit, a name of a befogged yet moving vessel which I’ll avoid attributing too much symbolic meaning to.
Taurus passes Robbins Reef Light.
And Americas Spirit came closer.
She was so close to this shore observer that two of her crew could be clearly seen on the bridge wing.
Barbara McAllister spun her stern to put the tanker portside to at the dock. More of these docking fotos tomorrow.
And Hunting Creek also made her way from Brooklynside to Bayonneside.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp.
One type of post that has evolved here is Whatzit? Know what this juxtaposition of hardware and jungle might be?
One of the many joys watching traffic at the Miraflores lock was getting new perspective on these vessels. Just a few weeks back I caught sister ship Bow Chain in the KVK, but from the platforms allowed me, I could not see above deck much.
If you return to the top foto here, you’ll see the green bow of this vessel–Ever Dynamic–sharing the Miraflores locks with Bow Summer.

Tying the recent Nola visit and this post together, click here for a tugster post from over five years ago. S/R Wilmington was one of the first ships I got upclose fotos of; she was built in Avondale, LA, and has recently been scrapped. A related vessel currently called Oriental Nicety is also bound for the scrappers; Nicety‘s previous names have been as follows: Dong Fang Ocean, Mediterranean, SeaRiver Mediterranean, and last but not least . . . . Exxon Valdez.
