More Harbor Photos

A three-day weekend meant I had more time to spend at the harbor getting used to using my new toy. It’s got more bells and whistles than my old toy, so there is a bit of a learning curve.

Out of service…tug Nalani:

Seto Express departing around noon:

I had the chance to go out on the pilot boat in the afternoon. Yes, again. Hmm. Does that make me a groupie? Eek.

Tug of the day…Capt Les Easom heading out:

She was towing Hilo Bay out with Tira Lani assisting.

The ship arriving was Manulani. My last encounter with her was my rather sad attempt to photograph her from my friend’s sailboat.

Conditions must have been good for fishing, as there were groups of boobies floating on the water:

Mostly brown boobies here with one masked booby at right.

Taking off as the pilot boat got closer:

A lovely day. 🙂

Mahalo to Paul and Captain Al Dorflinger.
