Thinking Out Loud

I mentioned one other time on a post that as a child I always dreamed of 'hitching' a ride

 on one of these ships in Halifax Harbour. They were, and still are, always coming and going.

Yesterday this container ship was entering the harbour as we were walking at the Park.

I wondered where this one was from and if there were any hitchhikers aboard.

I would imagine the crew looks forward to coming ashore at each port 
to stock up on supplies to get then to the next port.

Actually it is a common sight to see 'crew members' walking along
the waterfront streets in Halifax.....has always been.

After we circled the Park and headed back to the parking lot, I saw that this ship was docking.

This ship is registered in California. Let me edit that, it's name is Zim California.
The registered name is usually on the stern of the ship, which I couldn't see.

This ship probably came from Europe. 
What a great way to see the world.
