Leaving Seattle

According to vessel tracking site sailwx.info, the Hanjin Baltimore is offshore near the mouth of the Columbia River, heading north. It will reach Port Angeles in the Strait of Juan de Fuca at about 9 pm, where it will take on a pilot to navigate Puget Sound to Seattle. The ship is scheduled to arrive at Pier 46 tomorrow at 1 am, and to begin cargo operations two hours later.  At 4 am it will begin taking on fuel oil from a barge. I’m getting on at around 3 pm and the ship is scheduled to leave at 5 pm for Pusan, South Korea. 22 days later I should be in Shanghai.

About Saint Expedite

Retired early, then took a trip across the Pacific from Seattle by container ship. From China I stopped in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Holland, Denmark, England and Ireland before heading home to Puget Sound. This blog is an account of my travels.

    You’ll have a great adventure. Looking forward to hearing about it!
