When I started doing the 366 exercise, things went OK for a bit, but I realised that I needed a routine for the writing. I’ve become very aware over the last couple of weeks that some of writings are quite meandering, and really not that good (well, worse than usual).
After 366, I said that I wanted to get to 500, not quite there yet, not far really. I’m thinking that I need to regenerate that habit. I know I laid out quite a few topics that I wanted to write about, and I’ve even added a couple, but I am only very loosely following it. I need to find that commitment again. I’m gong to put a bit of effort in to that over the weekend.
I didn’t go for a walk this morning. It was chucking it down. I didn’t feel guilty, and it was very pleasant to be able to get up a casual time and make a cup of tea. I did manage to get out at lunchtime I had a job I needed to do, and managed it so that was good. Luckily, as I was passing the ferry port I could see that there was a ship coming in, which at first I thought might have been the Commodore Clipper, but was mildly confused by the orange stripe over the bridge. This is where Marine Traffic would normally become useful, but strangely enough she wasn’t beaconing on AIS (it’s worth doing an article on AIS). Turns out to be the Arrow.
Now, I had originally got the Arrow down as a Reefer, turns out I should have looked at Marine Traffic a bit closer. It’s a Roll-on, Roll-off cargo ferry.
I have a bit of a dilemma, the Forton Bridge work should have finished by now, so I can start walking that way again. I could find out if the bridge is raised at specific times. I’d like to see it open. But, I also like waking along the waterfront in daylight, which my morning walks aren’t at this time of year. I shall take in turns.
