Odd sights

One of the things we don't see around here is large ships. Tankers, Container ships, Cruise ships. The biggest marine traffic we normally get is log booms.

Yet last night and this morning there was a big bulk carrier / tanker anchored saucy as you please just north of Thetis and Kuiper Islands. That's going to annoy the various eco-resorts down at Yellowpoint and scattered around all the other Islands in the neighborhood. Besides, I'm not sure it's deep enough around here to accommodate such vessels. Those things have the turning circle of a minor moon and the various passages between the Islands are a little on the tight side for anything bigger than a fifty metre Gin Palace.

This should get interesting.
