Reading the Ship Report

Some things are a given.  When there's a ship in the anchorage or passing by with three sets of king posts,bet on  it being the Sammi Crystal.  If you're in Astoria, this "just is".

Still, I look for confirmation.

After making a stop at Safeway for necessities, I saw the familiar profile against the afterglow.  Checking the ship report site confirmed what I already pretty much knew... the big rustbucket was back in town.

But there was more.  The Oriente Sky is in the anchorage, too!  This is the ship that I photographed about a year ago when the Columbia looked like a storm-tossed sea.

Both ships are featured, for the next few hours, anyway, in my first public display of photographs.

Interesting that they'd both show up as the curtain comes down on that episode.

The Sammi Crystal outbound, 12/20/2009.  I seldom get to see this leg of her trips.

Interesting, indeed. I appreciate the coincidence, and the elegant way you've noted it.
