Having had very nice day, up until late afternoon I hadn’t managed to get out for a walk. We needed a few birthday cards posting, and it needed to be in a postbox that would be collected in the morning in time for the afternoon forwarding.
Taking the opportunity for a walk, I said that I would go on a short walk to look at the post boxes in the local area to see what time they are emptied and drop the cards into the earliest post box, which turned out to be the post box at the railway station emptied at 0900.
During the walk, I took the opportunity to go and have a look at what was happening in the harbour. Almost as soon as I arrived I saw a tug loitering in the channel. Looking at Marine Traffic to see what was happening, I could see that the Arrow was going out. I didn’t think the tug was there to see the Arrow out, as it didn’t move as the outbound ship went past.
I checked Marine Traffic and sure enough there was a another container ship coming in, the Cote D’Ivoirian Star.
Very nice to see both ships, and to see the tugs working the inbound vessel, very professional they were too. A very pleasant quick walk.
