|Morning of May 18 ... |
This scene sent me for the camera.
|If I counted correctly, 19 units were dispatched|
for Marine Fire on Water.
About 15 minutes later the dispatch was cancelled. I do not know what happened but did find out that this ship had been the US Coast Guard Cutter John Midgett WHEC-726. Photo below ...
|USCGC John Midgett was transferred (sold? given?) to Vietnam and|
refurbished in Seattle earlier this year. Renamed Vietnam CG 8020. Photo below ...
|Nice looking Cutter when not on fire.|
Spring Walks ...
My daily walks have been along the Seattle waterfront, where I almost always find something for the camera.

Ship names ...
|How do you like GLYKOFILOUSSA ?|
Ship names are a fascination to me.
|GLYKOFILOUSSA, a bulk carrier,|
visited Grain Terminal 86
Along the walk ...
|I start here and walk about 1 1/2 miles turn around and come back|
for a total of about 3 miles.
|My favorite tree on the walk.|

|On a clear day, May 11th, the view of Mt Rainier |
from the waterfront was sweet.

Closing thought ...
