Sorry for the hiatus in posting.  I was out at sunrise New Years Day . . . but more on that in a moment.

Part of my silence was attributable to verizon.  The rest . . . was because I decided to ACT on new year’s resolutions, not just make them.

The first photos after sunrise January 1 . . . Buchanan 1, who must have been towing a loaded dredge spoils scow out as the new years whistles were blowing and fireworks blasting.  Bravo, Buchanan 1.

Jay Michael headed out with a scow load of dredge spoils, evidence that dredgers worked their way from 2014 to 2015.

If you return to yesterday’s post, I mentioned a tanker named Altius having a ghostly shape;  here that tanker close up and

and then still closer up.  E-ships lists launch date on Altius as 2004. Ghostly . . . or maybe ghastly paint job, especially the partial obscuring of the a previous name.  I can’t figure what it used to be.

Fantasmic  name.    By the way, Big G used to be called Launch 13, named for Patrolman M. Mercer.

Seven days of meditations have ground away at me.  Gotta draw from a different well for a few days.  Remember, click on a foto to enlarge it.

Oh . . . I will get grief for the foto below:  the glossy green bird from Equinox,which seems never to disappear from my top posts.
