A Few Through The Binoculars

Just a few pictures I took through the binoculars while at sea. Slightly surprised at how many we saw in the middle of the Pacific. When we hit Mexican waters, the night watches were lively with avoiding countless dots on the radar. One of these, encountered much nearer to shore off Lazaro Cardenas was so close that the Captain and I were both just staring off the starboard bow trying to figure out if we needed to reverse course in a hurry when we heard a whistle off to the side. Turns out we were about 25 feet away from running over a local fisherman’s net, which would have destroyed the prop, and that the ship was at anchor. Doh.
