Containers piled high aboard the President Truman
My brother Steve is in the merchant marine and the container ship that he is currently on pulled into port in Staten Island for a few hours. It's hard to believe that it's been three years since we saw him last. He's on this ship for six months and then home to Washington state for a month or two and then out to sea again. What a life he leads! It was good to see him and hopefully it won't be so long before we see him again.

Peter waiting and waiting and waiting for the sun to break
We had such fantastic light the day before, we decided to get up early to see if we could catch the sunrise lighting up a different set of barns at the Marie Zimmerman Estate. The sky was clear before we went to bed, but unfortunately clouds moved in and foiled our sunrise! No golden light for us but still beautiful and a nice walk -- maybe next time.

The Great Hall was a swirl of activity
We took Lisa back to the city and spent the afternoon at the Met. Peter and Lisa went off to discuss painting and I went in search of ancient sculpture and inspiration. It's been a long time since I wandered around the museum by myself and without a real plan. Fun was had by all.
