I am hoping you all are having a great weekend! There is still have plenty of time get your entries into all my challenges for this week. I’m sure the bloggers who I featured would appreciate your comments too.

Here is a little background on the BTG Olympus. She is a bulk carrier and currently sailing under the flag of Bahamas and has a has 229m length overall and beam of 32m. Her gross tonnage is 43500 tons.
I thought was just so very beautiful. It’s blue and white colors matched the perfect weather we were having. I adored it lines. I hope you enjoy enjoy it as much as I did.
Here is the BTG Olympus starting to enter the Columbia River from the Pacific Ocean. This must be 6-7 miles from where my hotel was.
She is now nearly in front of the hotel.
Now in front of the hotel, I could see her beautiful anchors and shadows at the bow of the ship.
There was a huge No Smoking sign painted on her. From what little information I could find, she was carrying some kind of gas.
A little further down the river in Astoria, she stopped and anchored. The small boat you see parked beside her on the left is where they change Captains. Only a handful of Captains are authorized to bring the big cargo ships into Portland’s harbors.Qi (energy) hugs
