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.111415WW_1

Now in front of the hotel, I could see her beautiful anchors and shadows at the bow of the ship.111415WW_2

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.111415WW_4Qi (energy) hugs
