Happy Earth Day. Well . . every day should be that, and although I recall and participated in the very first one in 1970, I’m no longer so enamored of the name. Planet Day would be better, and of course every day should be that as well. Actually . .. I’m rather more attracted to declaring this and every day Sea Day. Actually, every day already is, with a parade of random vessels making their way past the KV buoy every day all day.
See that random stuff floating in the foreground on KVK waters?
This was at my feet that same day, all arranged by tide and wind and buoyancy. And here’s more.
Some these pics I took a month ago, a day I’d just heard about the search for the tragic Malaysian Flight 370. What struck me as strange was the reporter’s reference to “sea junk” … a term that seemed to suggest the sea was responsible for debris of all sorts floating there.
Calling it “our junk” would make more sense.
Today is also the 50th anniversary of the opening of the 1964 World’s Fair. If you don’t think the world has changed much in a half century, watch The Magic Bus, a video about a journey from California to the World’s Fair.
OK . . . let’s go back to today. I got work to do. Look at this desk junk . . . my desk. Note the logo on cup and guarded by the feline.
Let mer see . . . happy see day.
Earth Day 2010 7 foggy sunrise, the unit leaving Arthur Kill in the direction of the Bayonne Bridge … is
Davis Sea pushing DBL 26, a 28,000-barrel vessel. Given the amount of influence Gaylord Nelson has had, it’s totally appropriate to refer to him here.
Foto compliments of Jed, here’s a different sunrise in April, as enjoyed from the galley.
Davis Sea, once again, following Atlantic Concert, headed for sea.

Houma, as seen here six weeks ago.
Ivory C . . . Nah, I haven’t enough Wall Street experience to trick you there.
Fotos 3, 4, and 6 by Jed–who’s not returning to the sixth boro anytime soon, having found warmer water, calmer seas, and faster vessels with at least 30,000 more horsepower each.
Others fotos by Will Van Dorp, who will miss Jed as a neighbor in the boro.
