Okay, these are not the best pictures but they are from today and with 12 hours of work then 4 hours of class you guys can't be picky!
I took the top photo when I was quickly changing my clothes and heading to class. It is always amazing to watch the tug boats spin those huge container ships and get them docked by the APL crane. For those that haven't seen container ships, all those little boxes are full sized truck trailers towed by 18 wheelers when not on a boat. To see these boats being maneuvered right in front of our place is always a treat. Even though it seems they are too close to shore they are in about 80 feet of water where they are at, the average depth for most of Illiuliuk Bay.
The bottom two photos Goldfish took this evening while I was in class. They are a big rough due to the sun and rain on the dirty window (but I assured her it would be better to post them than not, so be nice!) but what was going on was the Time Bandit and the Northwestern were making runs through the East Channel while a Discovery Channel helicopter was shooting footage. It's actually pretty cool, I saw it last year with the North American. The helicopter flies really low and close - I'll maybe watch the season premiere and see if they got any shots of the house.
King crab season opens tomorrow at noon, let the games begin!
