A Sunrise trip on Hakata Bay with Fu Kyo the Cat

Early one morning....

Yep, this must be Fukuoka.

The old fishing harbor at Nakahama. 
When we first came to Fukuoka in 1989, this harbor was by times loaded with fishing boats.
Where have they gone?

Thank You.

Bayside Place, from here ferries come and go to the other side of Hakata Bay, the off-shore islands and even all the way to Okinawa.

...just to the left of the tower, shows the mountain-range  of my favorite hike.
 Mt. Raizan to Mt. Iwahara.

Hakata Bay as Fu Kyo the Cat sees it.

Nippon Maru in Hakata Bay

Nippon Maru at anchor in Hakata Bay.

Wow, what a lucky crew we had on board of Fu Kyo.

NIPPON MARU, Japan's proud square rigger, was at anchor 

and we were OF COURSE able to come 

really close for some amazing pictures.
