Thanks to Les Sonnenmark and Peter Lellow for helping me “see” what I was just looking at.  Last week I got some fotos of Düsseldorf Express leaving the sixth boro via the KVK.  See anything different?

Here’s a foto Peter sent me . . . a container ship in port hooked up to shore power.  Cold ironing . . . I’d heard about it but never known what it looked like.  I don’t know if the service already exists in Port Elizabeth . ..  but this vessel is equipped.

I took the first three fotos.  Thanks much to Les and Peter for directing and educating my eyes.
