We see lots of the same cruise ships coming and going each day. Occasionally there is a ship that we don't see very often like the Nippon Maru from Toyko. I remember seeing it last year too but I can't remember what time of the summer it was.
These folks came just in time for the great fireworks show on July 3rd and they didn't leave town until after the first big parade. What an experience for them if they took the opportunity to get off the ship.
One thing I know - mice and rats BEWARE the Nippon Maru is not place for you!
