Like Ships in the Day -- 6/4/2014

We are so fortunate to have a side tie on "O" Dock of Stimson Marina, in Seattle's  Ballard community, and next to Pacific Fishermen Shipyard, where there is frequent movement of ships in and out.

I never tire of watching them and have no idea why Pinnacle comes and goes so often -- maybe some day I will find out.

Northwestern was the ship in the TV series, "Deadliest Catch."

Deep Pacific comes in with a tug at both the bow and the stern.  I'd like to learn more here, also.  I get the binoculars to see the scene at the waterline.  Is it rust...or a landscape of Arizona and Washington?  Maybe when she leaves, I will see if it is different, after having been repaired!

Then there are pleasure craft, many of which are heading to the Locks.  This one I call the pirate ship; she plays lively music, but doesn't stay around very long.   She just cruises up and down the ship channel.

My favorite is Toy because of her sounds.  She has the coolest put-put engine and if you look closely in the second photo, you can see the puff of smoke from the smokestack, which angles to the left, as viewed toward the stern.

Propeller is either a tour boat or a vessel with a large crew!

Find Willie's Tug....
