Birthday Baubles

We didn’t have access to the ‘ilima/maile ship lei this year. 😦

I didn’t want to see the ship without any sort of special dress for her birthday. So, I went out and got a few shiny baubles, which I put up yesterday before the board meeting at the pier:

Out of the tube and ready for hanging:

While they are large compared to average ornaments, they are definitely dwarfed by the size of the ship:

Not perfect, but better than nothing.

Manoa was leaving as I was attaching the baubles to the rail:

After the meeting, I took care of the chafing gear for the electrical cable:

It’s not my best work, but it needed to be done.

The sun was setting by the time I left the ship:
