Delaware Bay Anchorage

We interrupt the postings from Spain for this photo taken on a southbound flight over the Delaware Bay. Look closely and you’ll see ships in the anchorage.

Rokon

Check out this vintage Rokon from 1971, lovingly restored by a friend of mine.

Before there were all many of all terrain vehicles, there was the Rokon, which features an amazing design. Both the front and rear wheel are drive wheels thanks to a gear box located under the seat and a driveshaft that runs forward.

The Rokon is a rugged machine designed for rough use. The wheels are hollow and you can use them to store fuel.

While innovative, the design is fairly simple as you can see in the close-ups above and below.

It’s an impressive unit given when it was first available. Some stunning examples still in use.

Tugboat idling

Spotted this handsome tugboat idling in the river during a recent video mission.DSC_1780

Great looking boat, well cared for, and working steadily. (Nikon D810)

Under the bridge…

Here’s another video from a day on the Delaware River. This time, we pass under the Ben Franklin Bridge in glorious black and white. Stay with the video all the way to the end to see the subway train crossing.

That’s a handsome bridge, especially from that angle. I have another one coming in which we’ll pass under the Walt Whitman. Stay tuned.
