its all happening

It's all happening in the entrance to Port Nelson below my house.

  Day and night,ships coming and going.

 Containers to be loaded and unloaded, or logs to be picked up to take to China,

 shuddering and throbbing, crashing and banging,

 in all kinds of weather.

  A cruise ship is a surprise, especially when they start broadcasting their activities over the tannoy  at 8 am.

 HMNZS Otago sailed in this morning with the crew on the fore deck, all smart and ship shape.

The Battle of Trafalgar is to take place today - a keenly  anticipate rugby game. Could  that be a co-incidence?  Hmmm.


  1. Never a dull moment for you then!

  2. Wow! What an amazing view you have. I can see why you never tire of it.

  3. It doesn't sound as though sleeping in is an option! Mind you, with that view, I don't suppose you mind too much.

    1. Too right....I was woken up about 20 min ago by the Eriskay
      thundering by.
