Bouys, a boat and a bulker

And, I might add, an ever-present bridge.

Some calm between storms in the new year.
Shot 1/2/2009.

The "boat" (as opposed to "ship") is Astoria's own Arrow 2, the Columbia River Pilot vessel.  She may look like "Little Toot", but this is a very task-oriented craft.  Very little wasted movement, and occasionally some astonishingly balletic moves when traffic is heavy.
