Two ways of showing the same tanker. The cruise ship it is alongside is BIG.

Is it kind of a "tight squeeze" for it to get into the port?
What an interesting shape this ship has. From the back it looks like a floating box. So squarish.
Great photos.

Dina - This a bunker fuel tanker and usually she only goes around the port 'refilling' the other ships on request.

Looks pretty at the old marina. Great light in the top photo.

LOVE those big tankers! The best place around here to watch them is in Duluth, MN---a steady stream of them.

Haven't been commenting lately because of a real pain in ithe neck. Meds not working yet. Computer and keyboard posture difficult, but I'll be back--don't go away!
