“As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean” is a line from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner 220 years ago.  This ship might be painted, and the ocean and sky nicely colored, but that ship is certainly not idle.

MOL Glide  . . . glided in through the Narrows a few days ago, and has also glided out, heading for Charleston SC.   The approach to the sixth boro is not always that pretty.

When Leda Maersk arrived, the sky was overcast and the colors subdued.

 

Overcast with wispy clouds that allow some reflection from OOCL Berlin.

It was just after 0800, so I’d

call this morning fog.

The variety is  . .  infinite:a survey boat from Georgia in the KVK,

a NJ State Police RIB in the same waterway,

a sloop heading south crossing Radiant Ray,   [I wonder if that tanker is nicknamed Ray Ray.]

a camouflage boat of unusual design,

a trawler southbound opposing Seaways Guayaquil,

My Way yacht from Charlotte NC in the KVK,

a small fishing boat that must have been over a place with lots of fish,

 Tide Runner all prepped to fish,

a Hinckley,

something colorful, noisy and fast,

a workboat for  Trillion Oyster Project . . .  or maybe that will be the number in a few years . . .

a northbound sloop,

another fishing boat . . .

and finally yet another fishing boat gliding past MOL Glide . .

The sixth boro is enjoyed by lots of folks  in smallest boats.  Flukes, stripers, bluefish . . .  what are these boaters hoping to hook and boat?

All photos recently, WVD.
