The CCGS Louis St. Laurent ,the Coast Guards second oldest ship, and one of 2 heavy icebreakers arrived in port Monday. On Arrival, she topped up the tanks at the Irving Oil Wharf. and then moved to the basin off BIO, before tieing up at Pier 9 Tuesday morning.
Formerly based in Halifax, the ship was moved to St. John’s Newfoundland. The ship is likely here for Supplies and crew change, but given the proximity to the end of the federal fiscal year, may be on some budget maximization exercise until April 1.
i know posting has been thin this month. it should return to normal shortly.
In the beginning I was tied up prepping for an exam. That exam sent someone to the hospital. I know that’s vague, but not much has been said publicly, and its not my place to say more. Suffice to say, I was distracted, and needed some time.
I have updated the map, which should hopefully speed up page load times. there’s a few other things in the works, and you should see posts again this week.
