Thought this kind of looked like an old postcard when I took the photo, figured I’d touch it up a bit. Yes, the ‘I’ was there, but barely. ;-)

I am not sure what the ship’s name is in reference to, but most ships at this particualar port are of Norwegian origin. Most are still active, though, due to recent regulations, there are quite a few vessels that are sitting here, rusting away. I am also told that one of the neighboring ships to the Zibet was recently part of a show on the Discovery Channel called “Deadliest Catch”, though I can’t seem to find which ship it was.
