And last but not least . . .  just cellphone-snapped by chance by Birk Thomas yesterday, it’s Miss Lis, which at this writing is about to steam past Sandy Hook on her way out of the sixth boro.  What’s remarkable about this foto is that Birk caught this Tradewinds tug in the last two miles of a journey that started in LA!   I feel like there should be a brass band playing or some other celebration of completion.   Click here to my previous “seeing” of another Tradewinds tug.
