Wind! Rain! Ugh.

I don’t like gusty wind. The sound of the wind woke me up early this morning. When I can’t sleep, I get up and do stuff on the computer. I checked my email to find a tsunami information statement related to a strong earthquake in Alaska. Great. Then a short while later, another one came in related to an earthquake on the Big Island. Fortunately, no watch or warning for Hawai‘i. Whew!

In addition to the wind, it has been raining on and off for most of the day.

Waiting at a bus stop (Hollies!) on the way to the ship this morning:

Much better conditions down at the harbor (still windy but less rainy):

Mostly barge traffic on the schedule for today.

It’s always fun to watch the tugs. Mary Catherine, engines working hard, maneuvering to slow the barge down:

The wind and rain meant maintenance tasks like securing things on board the ship and emptying buckets.

For fun, during a rainy period, I made a large monkey fist out of some extra line:

I took my usual walk along the pier after leaving the ship. Musashi was at Pier 9 again.

Spotted this:

Looks like the bollard is being choked by Musashi’s lines.
