552 – Down at the waterfront

At six thirty in the morning there isn’t much happening at the waterfront. The Gosport ferry going backwards and forwards, a Brittany ferry coming in usually it’s the Mon St Michel or the Normandie. Yesterday morning it was the Barfleur, a ferry that I don’t think I had seen before.

This morning, the Mon St Michel was followed in by the Whitonia one of the bunkering ships, that I knew was heading for the Galicia, one of the ferries that I still haven’t seen. Most frustrating.

Just every so often a cargo ship will enter or leave the harbour. Usually these are ships carrying refrigeration containers, the ships are consequently called Reefers. Sometimes they can be general cargo carriers.

After the channel in to the port was dredged for the aircraft carriers, the harbour became more readily available to cruise ships. Not the giants of the major lines, but bigger than what had been coming in. I haven’t seen a cruise ship in a fair while.

Whatever the happenings in the harbour, it’s always a pleasure to see it.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
