Ghost ships on the Columbia River

It was drizzly and foggy this morning, so much so that I would barely have recognized that a ship was passing except that it announced itself with its foghorn. I love the sound. It's interesting that even in the deep fog, you can see the reflection of the ship on the water.

A little bit later a Coast Guard ship came by heading for the dock just upriver from us at the Maritime Museum. It was closer than the big ship, as the trajectory had it skimming just past our location.

Here's the mast in the fog.

And some guys in the stern of the ship.

Now it passes the radio tower and goes out of sight and into port.
