Mikie and I had to drive to Port Arthur this Saturday to pick up some stuff for my brother-in-law. We met the captain and first mate on the Chemical Trader, a ship that is being decommissioned by the company that my brother-in-law works for. Capt. Garrity and Milton were the only two remaining crew members and were both charming. We got to tour the ship and Mikie took a lot of pictures.
Here is Mikie’s photo-set from our visit to the ship. Lots of great images.
