I see no ships

Still in Europe!!

Having originally thought it would be Christmas crackers in a container port, the week has drifted by with a series of: ‘…the ship will arrive tomorrow…blah…blah’ We are now told to be on the dockside at 09.00 hrs Monday 2nd January for our next instructions/surprise. I can find my way to marinetraffic.com blindfold – and yes, today, Grande Africa – a digital green dot on a Google map – is sitting in Le Havre docks. But now it’s New Year, so who knows when it will load, or leave. Having learnt that the passengers on a previous voyage had their cars unloaded in Rio and left on the dockside until the next Grimaldi ship arrived to transport them to BA, we are a tad nervous. Will we have a car left at the end of this? Maybe we’ll just get a pallet with a few bits??

Rather hoping our next post will be from Argentina.

May we wish everyone a Happy New Year!

  3. Hope you are now on the ocean waves. Misty is laid in front of the fire giving me a rare chance to get the laptop out – she HELPS a lot! She’s getting some new furniture but we are having an ‘access check’ first because I don’t see how it will get through the door. Bon voyage, I hope.
