TOPIC: A ship is coming
#44686
A ship is coming 2 Years, 5 Months ago  
I'm just back from the beach with my kids. The Maersk Tukang has just passed Dover and is leaving the channel. Despite freezing temperatures we headed out to take some pictures.

Picture 1: If you look very, very closely, then you spot the container. Okay - I tried my best. Despite good views today (we could see the French coast) and an SLR with a 250mm tele this is as good as it gets.
At least I'm 90% sure it actually is the right ship.

Picture 2 shows the Christina and the Maersk Tukang. I actually started to make photos of the wrong ship until I realized it was going in the wrong direction ... Both ships are actually of similar size but going east means you are closer to France.

Picture 3 is the Deal pier. It is actually 300m long (exactly the lengths of the Titanic) but even going to the end of the pier didn't help much to get closer. At least there is a cafe - so you could stay inside and it was a lot warmer. My kids can thank you for some Hot Chocolate.

Image 4 is the beach in Deal. It isn't often that we have snow here. In some years we have non at all.

This was approx. 1 hour ago. I think it is just 2 more and the ship should arrive. Now we just need to get the container through customs and to Otherworld to unload.

With a bit of luck my 6 sets will be here by 19th and I could use them in my next Pathfinder session...

Thanks for the offer. I should e-mail later. I just hope the streets are fine. Here on the island you tend to be less equipped for winter and snow - as it doesn't happen often.

Now it is just customs and then unload.

I'm not looking forward to either. Just hope no surprises and that it goes smoothly.

Cross them harder ...

We have been selected for special custom screening. Delay unknown.

I keep you updated.

It shouldn't take too long but unloading now looks like next week.

I'm relieved that the news of the new set are out now. I did notice an increased traffic on my page today.

Other news:
A package with certificates has arrived - we just need to add them to all orders for limited sets.

No news yet from customs. Come on - we are all waiting ...

Still waiting for the stalagmites - a package is on it's way.
