This has been an active week for cargo coming into the port; there has been a steady stream of ships coming and going. Huge ships, 950 foot to over 1000 feet, are normal these days.

The 1167 foot Arnold Maersk was too long for my camera lens. Also, a very unusual configuration was the Vargas Trader, with a midships tower and stack at the stern.
