A Thriving Global Economy, It Appears


Another container ship sails into Halifax Harbour before nightfall.


I wonder what each of these containers is holding.


Besides an occasional 'stowaway' , I am sure they contain everything imaginable.


You see, this is just a part of the journey.


One of these may be destined to your locale, who knows?

  1. I don't think that ship can sail all the way to Edmonton. D'oh! Now I know what you mean -- I guess they must truck it or train it all the way out to us.

  5. Very cool! I do something similar when I see jets flying overhead. Try to imagine who is on that plane and where they`re going.

    1. The very same thing! When I was a kid I used to dream about being one of those stowaways......going to who knows where!

  6. I live about 10 minutes from the Delta Port, Vancouver, BC. Lots of containers from around the world, and lots cars being unloaded. Tucker

    1. Hey Tucker! Welcome aboard this blog ship! Hey I try! lol
      We lived in Vancouver back in the late 70's and early 80's. Yes, very similar indeed!

  8. Tänk
    om kärleken
    och freden
    kunde bäras
    på ett skepp över haven. !!

    Think
    if love
    and peace
    could be carried
    on a ship across the sea. !

  10. Was just watching frieghters float by on the great lakes thinking something similar.
    But working in a drug store, my first thought of those container ships is cheap Chinese junk. I respect the Chinese, I just think we Americans only buy the cheap stuff from there.

    1. And too Stew, why can't we in North America produce 'the cheap stuff' for ourselves! I know, the cost of labour etc......but something ought to be done to keep jobs in N.A.

  11. Great pics :) Wow, I seriously can't begin to imagine how much stuff that ship is carrying! Reminds me of a hoarders episode - I'd just like to take a good look at everything!
