WPC: Floating Containers and Packing Boxes

Every day when I look out of my bedroom window, I see container ships full of cargo. Sometimes they seem so close that I feel I could reach out an touch them. Well maybe, not quite, but our neighbour’s son and his friends could certainly¬† swim out to it. This one is empty of containers, judging by the height of the Plimsoll Line above the water.

It was quite hazy this morning, so some looked quite ghostly. I hope those containers are well secured. They look very close to the edge.

The Anuket Amger is an oil and chemical tanker.

The Min Rui is a general cargo ship from Hong Kong. I wonder what it’s bringing into Durban Harbour. Most probably cheap clothing, which tends to last for only one season.

These ships can sit motionless for days on end. We have regular strikes here, so the port is often very congested.

At the present time, I’m more concerned with a different sort of container. These have started sprouting up in one of the bedrooms.
