Supply Ship coming and Supply ship going

Although it was a very miserable day, I did manage to take a photo of what think is a beautiful ship, the Maersk Tackler departing heading to the West Hercules, and the new Maersk Clipper, a very distinctive looking ship arriving from the West Hercules.

More Salt

Today the Salarium was back unloading salt for St. John's, getting ready for winter. This is the third load I think for this ship. The Salarium was built in 1980 and is 730 feet long and is owned by Canada Steamship lines.
