Wednesday was such a spectacular day for parading into NYC’s Upper Bay that even the cormorant took notice.

USS New York had this Osprey on its deck, surrounded by a crew of sailors and marines.

Previous appearances of USS New York, in the harbor and on this blog, can be found here.


Also in the procession were USCGC Campbell, 

USCGC Lawrence O. Lawson,

USCGC Katherine Walker,

HMCS Glace Bay,

ketch HMCS Oriole,

USMMA’s Kings Pointer

USS Tornado, 

some YPs, and

numerous smaller craft like this one . . ..

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who encourages you to tour whichever boats capture your fancy.

Katherine Walker has appeared or been mentioned here before many times.  And–last but certainly not least– my favorite photos of Kings Pointer can be found here . . . near the end of the post.



Perspicacious bowsprite snapped this vessel of a Canadian patrol vessel headed upriver a few days back.  It’s Glace Bay, named for that place up in Nova Scotia.    Question:  did anyone catch the number of the sister vessel that accompanied 701 in?  Is that James Turecamo pushing scrap paper south?


At dawn on Thursday I caught Hansa Sonderburg over at Howland Hook as the sun illuminated forward surfaces of house, hatch covers, and deck crane.  Although the superstructure looks minimal, it


carries passengers.  Anyone ever travel on her?  I’d love to hear a report.  Below is same vessel a few drizzly hours later.


Finally here are some interesting sites I’ve newly discovered:

Check out Jane’s blogalogue and Brian’s Moveable Bridge.   I’m also including a link to water photos that Jane forwarded.  Thanks.
