Sunrise at sea
Two days out of Eniwetok Atoll
The summer of 44
'The sea is like molten glass, hardly a ripple; just huge, long rolling swells that make the ship roll about nine degrees starboard to port in a lazy fashion like mother rocking a cradle. The water is deep, deep blue, and the sky is the most delicate blue you can possibly imagine. It's darkening to a deep shade as it stretches into the West. In the north and south large thunder heads are massed through which jagged streaks of lightning are continuously playing. The east is a mass of colors ranging from fiery gold, to orange, pale gold, red and a lovely fragile rose. The kaleidoscope of colors makes a path from the horizon to the stern of the ship.'

From the diary of F.M. Elder,'Oiler', M/V Jupiter Inlet

Reminds me of a place on the Mississippi River close to Reserve area where a superstructure of a river tug sits ashore and is used as office for a tugboat company.

The hull was used as an ammunition storage barge near Ketchikan if I remember correctly. Saw her there in the mid-nineties.

regards,
