Dredge and Survey

Here’s another photo from the dredging of the back basin at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. This time, you see the survey boat checking the depth.


There was also some moorings built during this project. I hope to get some more photos soon. Stay tuned.

Kitesurfing the Atlantic

While in Margate, NJ, USA, I paused for a look at the beach and ocean. Saw this fellow kitesurfing.

Gave me an opportunity to test out the video feature on my iPhone7. Works fairly well. That water was a bit chilly, but it didn’t seem to cut down on the guy’s fun. Be careful out there.

Parade Rest

In the back basin of the Philadelphia Navy Yard, you’ll find a number of ships in reserve or mothballed status. Fortunately, they’re not needed as intended. Still, sad to see them laid up. Here’s a look at a few on a clear morning.


Eventually they will be sold or scrapped. I’m sure their former crews have many stories to tell.

Lucy, Margate, NJ, USA

Lucy is one of those roadside attractions from another era. A giant elephant that looks out to sea in Margate, New Jersey.


Fun for the whole family, this type of thing is. On the afternoon I was there, it was closed. Still something to see. Enjoy the journey.
