Into the Sunrise

HA.  This is not Sharlene K.  But according to the ship registry that Ellie linked to the other day (thank you very much), this is another trawler, named LOFOTEN, built in 1962, from Vancouver, British Columbia.  

As we headed out on our nature/wildlife cruise in our little 53-ft yacht, this trawler was sailing into the sunrise.  Actually, it was 10:54 a.m when I took this pic.  The sun didn't burn off the fog until long after lunch.  I kinda liked that because It made for a good silhouette of this lady against the still-moody sky.

Wouldn't you just love to be alongside her all day and catch the whole fishing experience on film!

And where were YOU in 1962 when she was born?  I was a junior in high school back in Michigan.  :)

Ginnie Hart: Yes, Mad, the registry is very cool. I'll probably use it now every time I spot a new ship/boat.

And congrats on joining the Shutterchance family! You're gonna love it. Just remain true to yourself and don't worry a whit about what anyone else says smile Make sure you put a link to it in your sidebar on your Willow Grace site, please. I'll want to segue to it when I'm there.

Lovely, they grey makes the picture surprisingly calm, and that band of brightness in the sky is amazing.

Google's told me that Lofoten is an area of Norway wink .. and as for 1962? I'm not telling!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ellie, for your comment, as always!

And a big HMMM about this boat's nationality! I did notice that the ship registry says the "flag" is "unknown." If you squint, the sign at the back of the boat says "Lofoten, Van BC." I wonder if it was built in Norway and now resides in Vancouver. Or, maybe it was built in Canada by someone FROM Norway? HA, the scenarios become endless when they say "unknown," don't they.

As for not telling about 1962, that's not fair! sad
I love this pic. Just gorgeous! Ellie's right about that band of light!

Ships are often registered in different places than where they hail from aren't they?

I used to work in a restaurant bar in Maine lots of fisherman and lobsterman.Interesting stories. Not such a romantic lifestyle. Hard, hard work.

In '62 I was 5 in Boylston MA but, shhhh!
Ginnie Hart: HA, Josie. I won't tell a soul. At least you were born. smile

It's funny how a simple pic can lead to an education. I'm learning a lot about ships with almost every comment. Thanks!

Yes, the bands of gray and the band of light in perfect thirds! smile
Ginnie Hart: Ah yes, Ruth. Those "perfect thirds!" Gotta make sure they don't bite you. smile

And around 1962, I bet your first grade teacher loved you death! (Did I guess right? smile
Ginnie, I really lovig this series!
Another great one, I almost thought it was Sharlene K.
Ginnie Hart: HA, Dotun. So I'm very glad I made sure to say it WASN'T Ms. Sharlene K. smile
