So many ships...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 25 May 2013 in Business & Industry and Portfolio. we enter Limon, Panama. The entrance to the Panama Canal is off to the north. Larger ships are anchored offshore before entering the canal.

PS: Thanks, Doug, for the obvious correction. Shame on me as I KNOW better than to call them boats. ;D

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

@Doug: I stand duly corrected, and I changed the title and text accordingly.
Shame on me! ;D

lol to Doug, right as he is . . 'boats' are those that come alongside to sell you local trinkets - but I guess you are rather too elevated to be bothered by those !

@Ronnie 2¢: True, how true ... no trinkets sold alongside these huge cruise ships. ;D

Boats are the rubbery things that you wear on your feet in the rain Judy - (ships are what you have with fish).

What a lovely looked like you are onboard one of the largest ship around!

26 May 2013 2:08am

@tyan: At that point we *were* the largest, but I'm sure other cruise liners dock there.

There's a feeling of excitement looking at those huge ships waiting for their turn to enter the canal!

@Japanalia: Actually they are probably adding up the $$$ signs before going through. ;D

Tim from Ft. Worth, United States

i like the feel to this...very busy place, for sure!
it's funny how the maritime community gets all in a-dithers over the vernacular, haha. i have a mariner friend who is the same way. now if only those same folks could use pronouns properly with prepositions, especially in compound situations....just kidding (we grammarians are the same way). :)

@Tim: Yes, those 'old sailors' and 'grammarians' each have their sensitivities. <grin>
