And Again!

Today was another nice day at the harbor, sunny but not too hot. Guess what I did?

It does make a difference! It’s nice to see the old girl with a bit of spit and polish.

Yeah, I know…yawn. Enough of that.

Tug of the day, Nakoa:

I decided to take a walk toward Pier 4.

Tanker Overseas Samar:

Aside from the obvious “No Smoking,” tankers seem to have messages painted below the bridge. (Hmm…a new collection of photos?) The most common one is “Safety First.” Some of the other Overseas tankers say “Protect the Environment.” The message on Overseas Samar is “Do It Right.”

I’ve noticed some sea grape seeds on FOC’s deck lately. Here are a lot of them on the ground beneath a tree:

Seaweed growing on one of Ali‘i Kai’s lines:

Kolea jumping over a mooring line (the same one as above):

Not jumping, but still not pleased to have its picture taken:
