passing by

No sailing this morning, sometimes work gets in the way of life.  I did drop by the basin to check on SPARTINA.  The boom tent worked well, keeping the cockpit dry during last night's rains.  Like much of the east coast, we have a lot of heat and humidity.  That means afternoon thunderstorms.  With that in mind I chose to leave the boom tent in place. 

If you look just beyond the bridge you will see a freighter passing by.  Most of the commercial traffic on the river is barges and tugboats.  But there is a fair amount of freighter traffic heading either to the commercial shipyards on the eastern branch of the Elizabeth River or to the terminals on the southern branch.
