A quiet few days around here, not much at all to photograph… several ships are scheduled to come in tonight; hopefully I will catch them sailing tomorrow or Saturday.

I spent an hour and a half at my usual spot only to photograph 3 tugboats. I also passed by Stapleton to see, again, 3 ships in the anchorage.

Next week should be more productive; ships should be arriving with the “Spring Line” for all of us. Stay tuned…
