Unexpected Morning Excursion

I arrived at the harbor at the usual time. Since I was in no particular hurry to get to work on the ship, I took a detour to Pier 9 to watch the arrival of Chishio Maru.

I went over to the pilot boat to say “hello” to Paul and got invited to ride along. Yeah, cleaning dirt off the deck could wait.

Chishio Maru was one of four Japanese vessels on the shipping schedule today.

Unryu Maru left soon after Chishio Maru arrived:

Nice to see crew from Chishio Maru and Tosakaien Maru lending a hand on the pier.

Time for Matson’s Mokihana to leave:

Or…maybe not. Still loading vehicles!

Oh well. Time to go and get some work done.
