Large barge

A lazy summer afternoon

Mikura island pier barge Today was thoroughly uneventful. The only thing I managed to do today was laundry. No boat trips and no IDs. The only bit of excitement was some construction going on down at the pier. They are installing an extra 20 meters of pier abutting the new section that they constructed last year. So now the ‘new pier’ area will be wonderfully sheltered from the waves. It will be great when it is finished. There was an enormous barge parked in front of the pier today pouring sand into the honeycomb casings that they sunk this morning. Knowing how efficient the Japanese are with these sorts of things, I expect it will be all finished by tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it turns out!
