Something Different

It was a decent day for ship spotting.

Grand Princess was in port.

I’ve posted pics of her rat guards before, but this is a different set:

I think that’s supposed to be a cat. It looks like it’s been run over. Or something.

While I was there, the ship conducted a lifeboat drill. I’ve seen cruise ships lowering boats down to the water before, but this was the first time I’d seen the boats actually doing something.

This one says that the capacity is 150 persons:

I guess it’s larger than it looks? In an emergency, a crowded lifeboat is better than no lifeboat at all.

Looks like they move at a decent speed with just the crew:

I wonder how they handle when they are fully loaded…

No seagulls here, but we do have cattle egrets flying around:
