Quel énorme cargo.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Martine. This was the norm of ships we saw in the port.
Rawhide! Haven't heard that in a while.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I knew it came from somewhere, Michael. grin
Mammoth! (but not woolly)
Ginnie Hart: You nailed it, Larry!
Impressionnant ce porte containers.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: This particular ship really caught my eye that day, Pascale. A real beauty, I thought. Merci.

Yes that was quite something, Ginnie. I loved our boat-tour through the harbour and see these "monsters of the sea". Great picture!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Astrid. It was such a delightful and educational birthday gift, thanks to you!

This looks to be an all-action kinda place Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It's now the 3rd largest shipping port (behind Shanghai and Singapore), Chris. Well worth the 75-minute harbor tour which Astrid gave me for my birthday.

Looks like she has already discharged her cargo as she is high int he waterline. I winder what she had carried?
Ginnie Hart: It's all so fascinating, Alan, isn't it. The 75-min. harbor tour was most educational.
They look odd that high out of the water
Ginnie Hart: I know, Bill. Makes you wonder what kind of load it will take to make it sink back down!

A mighty looking vessel Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Mighty looking and mighty strong, I bet, Chad! smile
nice boat, but i wouldn't want to paint it smile
did i ever tell you that we painted our sail boat PURPLE? lol
Ginnie Hart: Actually, it would be a fun GROUP project to paint a boat like this, don't you think? HA!
Ja, in Rotjeknor en in de haven valt altijd wat te beleven en te zien.
Ginnie Hart: It was hugely educational, Marjolein!

The hulk is empty of bulk.
Ginnie Hart: How clever of you, Louis! smile
I like how the blues tie this all together. WHat a huge ship!
Ginnie Hart: What a good way to see this image, Ruthie. Thank you.
A floating loader.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Mary.

now that is a fascinating looking rig, Ginnie - very muscular!
Ginnie Hart: "Muscular" is the perfect word, Ayush!
Impressionnant ce cargo !
