"Never miss a chance to do good"--David Stanley
That is stunning. You don't think of freight carriers as anything special, but this makes them a thing of beauty. I guess it is all perspective.
Wow! This is indeed a beautiful world we get to live in. Thanks, Janet.Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and mom-like.
Beautiful! And interesting how it gets busy through the traffic lanes like that. We watch Deadliest Catch. The power of the ocean is amazing.Happy Mother's Day to the mom's of kids, floofs and all the other myriad pets out there.
Oh, those stars! Thank you for this, Janet.Happy Mother's Day to all those who are celebrating. I'll be on a raucous Zoom call with family later today.And a sign I've lost track of time: My book will be out June 1, not the already passed May 1.
Some freighters take a small number of passengers. A friend who took one back from Argentina to Florida said it was a great way to travel; the entire family enjoyed it. But it cost more than airfare.I'm working in New England, 800 miles from home; The client says if we travel out of state, we must quarantine for fourteen days. I'm thinking a few days at home and then a two week quarantine at a Caribbean resort. Could barely afford to lose two weeks pay but add a few thousand for two weeks at a dive resort and it's not affordable. But a fun thought.
Wow... thanks for sharing this.These shipping container ports are like small cities. It is astonishing to me how they keep it all moving and organized with everything going where it's supposed to go. I also keep thinking: Good grief, we humans sure require a lot of stuff.
The first night sky made me gasp. And I saw a place I will never go.(though I would like to)Thank you so much, Janet
On my laptop computer, the embedded video is the Bosch Season 6 Trailer. On my phone, the embedded video is 30 Days Timelapse at Sea.Very interesting.Happy Mother's Day everyone!
I started Mother's Day transfixed for 10 minutes before a video of maritime commerce and loved every second of it. It was close to a religious experience.To my fellow Moms, this is our day. It's mostly a thankless job 364 days a year but its worth it running the joint eh?
Happy mother's day!And thanks for the video experience. It's going into the hopper, from which all stories come. Especially ever since that season on the Wire, I've thought there was something interesting to do with shipping container stuff, and think maybe one day I'll implement it somewhere.
Wow! Thanks, Janet. Very trippy video. :-)
How smooth the water looks from 150 feet up. I know that they are not, but it looks so sedate, and the stars, oh my. I have seen such a site only twice in too many years.If you need a vacation just close you eyes and dream Jamaica is a big neon signHappy Mothers Day to all who are.
This was utterly fascinating. It's amazing how many things (like world-wide shipping) we take for granted. Thanks for sharing!
So wonderful, I had to share it on Facebook. Thanks, Janet! Hope your day is going well.
Now that's a fast boat to China.I love stars. I hope someday to witness that night sky. I saw the Milky Way with the glorious Southern Cross when I went to Brazil to research my novel. It took me three nights to realize I was seeing the Milky Way and not a wispy cloud. I was transfixed.
I used to work in the outback and at night we'd drive a little away from the accommodation buildings and lie on our backs staring at the sky. With no man-made lights the sky was stunning.
W-o-w!Happy Mother's Day to so many cool people who hang out here.
