What a treat . . .  swimming beneath the first summer full moon of 2011 in a new climate zone for me.  No matter what other people call it,  I’ll call it “gallivant and relax” moon.

The day before . . .  at the mouth of the St. Johns River, a shrimper, one would hope carries more “swimmy-things” than birds, although  there’s no guarantee.  I love the two pelicans on the portside gear.

Crewboat East River and dredger–either Padre Island or Dodge Island–suggest something of the range of GLD&D vessels . . .  a year ago they might have worked the sixth boro of New York.

This is looking west here along the channel between Fisher Island (south) and Dodge Island, where the container port is located.  Being here has forced me to look at and appreciate the development of greater Miami and Biscayne Bay in a whole new way . . .  Venetian Islands?!@!#!!

Fisher Island, named for an automotive tycoon –still possibly the most exclusive neighborhood in the USA–has its own ferry system.

Truckable tug Toucan and barge auto carrier . . .  I have to find more info here.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who is a bit overwhelmed by Miami . . . and has so far only seen the barrier beach.
