Let’s start at the Mattituck Inlet . . . and look east.  I’d never had a sense of the bluffs here.

I’d come here to catch a glimpse of the platform, the only deepwater petroleum platform on the US east coast, I’m told.

It was built in the 1960s by Northville Industries,

which in the decade before had built this storage facility. You can find more of that history here.

By the time I got closer, a tanker had arrived.

Kimolos carries the livery of the TEN fleet, like AfroditeKimolos has previously appeared in this blog nine years ago.

I believe those are two Miller’s Launch boats alongside the platform.   Kimolos has since departed for Sint Eustatius.
