Loading Portland Bay, part 1

Wednesday evening. Dusk on Ediz Hook. Overseas Los Angeles was anchored out in the harbor. Alaskan Explorer at the terminal on the town shore. One pilot boat at the dock, the other out there somewhere.

Thursday, November 18. Went down to the terminal docks before work to get a picture of Explorer. Had to pull aside to let a log truck pass. Um, huh? Where's he going? Something's happening here. At Terminal 3, the Pacific Basin Portland Bay is being loaded with logs. Chains rattle. Great hollow clanking thumps as bundles of logs are lowered into the hold. All four cranes are working. Trucks keep arriving.

I had to leave for work, alas.
