Visiting Mary A. Whalen

In June 2014, I met Carolina Salguero of PortSide NewYork when she was here in Hawai‘i. It was very nice to see her again when I made it over to Red Hook to have a look at her tanker, Mary A. Whalen.

Carolina gave me a tour of the ship and talked about the projects in progress on board. I admire her efforts on behalf of the ship and the waterfront and her dedication to keeping the surrounding community involved.

It was fun meeting ship’s cat, Chiclet. Here she is on deck, checking out Mr. ‘I‘iwi:

I wish I had more time to explore the neighborhood, but I had a train to catch.

Mahalo Carolina!
