San Pedro/LA Port Stop
It is Thursday, October 25, 2018, and we are aboard Holland America's Eurodam docked at the Los Angeles Cruise Ship Terminal.
|Thursday, October 25, 2018 -- We are docked at|
San Pedro/Los Angeles Cruise Ship Terminal
Right across from our ship is the beautiful
Vincent Thomas Bridge
|For perspective, the San Pedro Cruise Ship Terminal|
(aka Los Angeles World Cruise Center)
is about 18 miles from downtown L. A.
|This overview shot shows where we are docked.|
Just guessing, but probably this area is the largest
shipping center on the entire West Coast.
Truly fascinating for those of us interested in big ships!
|A big container ship passed right in front of us and then under|
the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
|Ship's name: Henry Hudson Bridge.|
First time I've seen a ship named after a bridge.
Just liked capturing a bridge going under a bridge.
|Yet another large container ship passing under Vincent Thomas.|
This is the Horizon Pacific -- homeport New York, NY.
Operated by Pasha Hawaii
|A couple of Tractor Tugs completely turned the Horizon Pacific|
around before assisting her to the dock.
|Looking out from the front of our ship.|
|This pic does give some scale to the whole scene.|
|Pretty nice capture with the Canon 730.|
|Happy boating right next to the big dogs.|
|Happened to notice the Lucy Franco.|
Recalled seeing Franco tugs in Alaska and Seattle.
Discovered history of Harley Franco's Company
|Massive new bridge under construction for the|
Seaside Freeway I-710
will take traffic over shipping lanes.

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
Those are some huge ships, all right. I would have been terrified to be on that little sailboat in the midst of them. Great shots, John. I'm enjoying this cruise. :-)ReplyDelete
