A Slow Saturday

Saturday was slow, the only movement was the Atlantic Heron shifting berths from pier 9 to the supply base, at the base was the Maersk Dispatcher.

Activity from the Weekend

The weekend was pretty good for ship watching. After work on Friday I headed down to see the new Paul A. Sacuta. There as well was the Atlantic Raven, Atlantic Osprey, and I just missed the Atlantic Eagle departing.

Saturday, I was able to photograph the Oceanex Avalon arriving as well as the CCGS Earl Grey secured the coast guard base.

Sunday, I went down and watched and photograph the new Paul A. Sacuta departing for trials, but before that was the Oceanex Sanderling arriving, and I ended the weekend off out to see the Navion Hispania anchored in Conception Bay, she is one of the shuttle tankers owned by Teekay Shipping, transporting oil to Whiffen Head.
