    I stayed up all night the night before the ark's burn to get a really got shot with the sunrise. When I arrived at the spot at night some huge art car was parked in front of the boat. They were really pissed of when I woke them up and asked them to move especially when I told them it was to take a picture with the boat, because as they grumbled: the boat looked much better with their car parked in front.
