As I mentioned yesterday – summer seems to be officially winding down. While this obviously makes me sad – it’s always nice to get a welcomed surprise, like the return of freighters to our busy riverfront port. The Atlantic Cozumel from Panama was in town today and must have arrived sometime during the Labor Day weekend – greeting me on the way to work in the morning. On the way home I had to stop to capture some of the late day sun on its hull. I love seeing these working ships doing their thing…and maybe the salt piles will shrink a bit before growing for the winter season…I didn’t spend enough time today to see whether the ship was loading or unloading.
As I drive up Market Street towards work everyday, I wonder what I’ll see in the river (if anything). Friday turned out to be one of those lucky days when I saw the Memorial Bridge fully lifted…which usually means 2 things: 1) traffic; and 2) boats! I thought I could see what appeared to be a freighter making its way into port. As I was heading home on Friday night to catch the 207 program, it turns out the Tasman Sea from Hong Kong was in fact docked at the New Hampshire State Pier.
