This post is not timely but it is interesting

Blogs work best when relevant information is provided quickly. So in that regard, this post is an utter failure. But I’m going to proceed anyway.

The Gail glides its way down the Delta near Buckley Cove.

Above is a photo of the Gail, a bulk carrier headed down the Delta a few weeks ago, presumably toward the Deep Water Channel and the Port of Stockton.

This photo was taken from Buckley Cove; it was a bit shocking to see a ship that large chug its way down the river. Its size provided quite a contrast to the guy on the jet ski that passed along its side in the opposite direction.

A closer look at the Gail.
