Mahimahi departing. With Foss tugs Freedom and Pi‘ilani.
Getting pushy. Freedom versus Mikioi.
Maunawili arriving. With Mikioi:
After a few rough weeks, it was wonderful to be allowed to tag along with Captain Enos on the Horizon Reliance job. There is nothing like being out on the water.
On board Honolulu:
I love the lines of these old LASH ships!

The Admiral’s Barge (from Pearl Harbor) hauled out on PSI’s dry dock:
Had a rough week too?
Thanks to Captain Ed Enos and Paul. Feel much better.
I went to the harbor to watch the departure of Esmeralda.

Mahalo to Michael MacDonald, Rick Wilson, and Whit Olson. Special thanks to Captain Ross Bright and Ryan Cabral.

Waiting for the pilot:
Horizon Reliance passing by, headed to her pier:
Waiting for the pilot again:
Maunawili and cranes silhouetted against the sky:

Not sure what was going on here just before the arrival of BBC France (in the distance):
Harbor Police boat:
Something new and a bit of a surprise, a large red-eared slider:
Someone’s abandoned or runaway pet? It was swimming away from the area where Nu‘uanu Stream flows into the harbor.
