Bonne annee from Savannah, but look who’s working:  crews of Maersk Jenaz and tugboat Bulldog.

Except this bridge officer, maybe.

Transfighter heads out in the setting sun to meet 2010 at sea.

Diane Moran travels upriver for an assist.

Another shot of Diane Moran with Cape Charles farther back and Peacemaker to the right.

And a final shot for now . . . Cape Henlopen upriver as well.

More soon.  Happy New Year whether you’re at work or play.  Ooops!  In honor of Conrad‘s steam whistles tonight, which I’ll miss, check out Susie

King Taylor‘s whistles as well as

the calliope on Georgia Queen.

Party at least a little tonight (in the blinking of an eye if that’s all the time you can afford).  Happy 2010.

Having gone back repeatedly trying to understand the attraction of the sea in my life, I’ve concluded it’s about the mystery. So much of our planet is a fluid–more like air than dry land–that cannot be visited without special gear and know-how. Huge creations like Manx-flagged British Courtesy above arrive from and depart into (or out to) the sea, as silent as the gull traversing the other fluid kingdom.

What comes forth from the sea on a foggy day sometimes boggles the imagination. Of course, this is ferry Manhasset, but to see this  “stranger-to-these-waters” low-slung vessel emerge from the fog can be unsettling.  Anyone know where it operates?
