    1. You're always so positive with your visits, I should take a little lesson from you dear Denise.

  2. There is something so majestic about watching the big ships come in - one of the things I love about being near the ocean and the Naval bases! Great contribution to WWA! Thanks, as always, for the support!

    1. ...oh I so agree with you on ships....and then, on top of that I'm married to a Navy guy, so the thrill in his eyes makes it even more so for me.

  4. Nice shots. The way your watermark is positioned it appears that several of those ships are named Hootin' Anni's. Or maybe they really are and you have never told us you own an entire fleet of ships :)

  7. We are both near the salt water, but I've got Bellingham Bay and a bunch of islands between me and the open sea. But both places are filled with interesting ships. We get a lot of ferries going off to Alaska or parts unknown. Nice pictures! Oh, and Happy Independence Day, Anni!

  10. Ships intrigue me, but after seeing the Poseidon Adventure haven't been keen on taking a cruise. Very nice shots!

    1. ...oh me either....I'm much prefer to view the ships from the shore.

  11. I could watch ships like that all day long. I googled the Tapatio. It is a Liberian registered chemical tanker. I hope that they are careful as it has a single hull rather than double hull design. (I think most tankers are single hulled, but what do I know besides nothing.)

    Love your pics.

  12. Hi There, Had a terrible time getting your post to come up today (am on my laptop in the car), and if you had a header photo, it never did come up.. Oh Well...

    I loved watching the big ships come in and out when we lived in Jacksonville (and would go to Mayport).

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

    1. ...well, I hope now you can get back in with no problems...maybe it was because I was taking down the 4th template and redesigning?!! Who knows.

  13. I like watching ships come and go as well. :) Thanks for sharing

    1. ...there is something intriguing about coming into port with the tugboats guiding and the near stillness of the engines like they're just gliding on the water's surface.
