Pictures from St. Maarten 1

just a dreamy ride, having a dozen claustrophobic sweating sailors on a small plane, most of whom come from countries that don't emphasize personal hygiene.

Spanish-built tug. Rugged as hell, but, again, smells like a hamster cage vis a vis the crew.

loading dock for small (800-foot) ships.

Christmas day. Just feel the cheer!

having no dock to load barges is a lot cheaper to maintain that, say, having a dock. They just drag the end of the hose to you with a little boat. Self-serve.

Home sweet home.

I dig the bridge-on-a-pole thing. I'd never seen that before. :)
