Bridge in Portland, OR, bow looking aft

Very foggy day on the Columbia/Willamette River.  That's the dry dock. 
Propeller and rudder out of the water. Note the markings on the rudder.  Each number is a foot.  Now compare the propeller size to those numbers! 
Another view of the Horizon Anchorage out of the water at the Swan Island dry dock.  Note the size of the people walking down the gangway.

It's Christmas!  i.e. same shit different day
We are drifting to kill time.  Note the smooth water on the stbd side.  Weird huh, since the wind and seas are off our Stbd beam.  That's because the wind is pushing us to the port, so the as the hull moves, it leaves calm seas near the hull despite being on the windward side.  We are drifting at about 1 kt, if I remember correctly.
