Déjà Vu

Exactly a year ago, I posted this: An Adventure

How cool that the same ships were in port today!

Queen Elizabeth arrived as I was walking to the harbor from the bus stop.

It was interesting to watch what was going on on the pier and on the ship.

Rats have been on my mind, as I had one invade my house the other day. Thanks to a trap, it is now an ex-rat.

However, very nice detail. Hitching on the weights:

Lots of barge traffic today. I thought this was the most interesting one. Assorted cargo on Pacific Trader:

I like the portables on top.

Recently, I’ve seen a brown booby diving for fish in the harbor. I tried getting photos of it, but due to the camera issue, the booby was more of a blurry.

Was a bit more lucky with the manual focus today. Still not the greatest, due to the distance.

Work on FOC goes on in the hot sun…


Bitts looking nice (if I say so myself):


I’ve posted photos of the Mossend mark before. I like this one I took today:
