In the drizzle, BBC Alabama awaits cargo in Port of Albany.
Pocomoke transfers cargo,
Brooklyn heads south,
Hudson Valley sentinels keep vigil no matter
how much rain falls,
Doris hangs with Adelaide,
as does Coral Coast with Cement Transporter 5300,
Strider rests from striding,
Union Dede docks at a port that 10 years ago was sleepy,
HR Pike (?) rests on rolling spuds,
Saugerties Light houses B&B guests,
not far from Clermont, home of the father-in-law of the father of steam boating on the Hudson and then the Mississippi,
Comet pushes Eva Leigh Cutler to the north,
Spooky‘s colors look subdued in the fall colors, and
two shipyard relatives meet.
Will Van Dorp took all these photos in a 12-hour period.
Type Kristin Poling into the search window here, and you’ll find lots of references to the 1934 vessel, which still works as hard as ever. One of my favorites is here. The foto below shows her under load, looking ever so slightly likea vessel from 120 years before her . . . if you lop off the paddle wheels. To read how Clermont intersected my ife, click here. By the way, whatever became of the project to build a replica of Clermont a few years back?
