shipping lanes

What's it like leaving L.A. Harbor on a cruise ship? To start with, I swear this "Evergreen" cargo ship is the one I photographed on last summer's Channel Islands trip (see blog entry). The west coast's largest port is a slightly surreal place. This view of San Pedro reminds me of a hand-tinted picture book of the glory days of communist China.
This is what it looks like from the top deck of the cruise ship. One cargo ship coming in, one cruise ship going out, with us following right behind.

To comprehend the scale of these ships, it helps to see one of similar size churning away in front of you.

The lighthouse and the tugboats doing their jobs...

Leaving the harbor at sunset. Nice photo Lisa.
