At the park in Halifax yesterday with sister, Mim, Maggie, her dog, and Sophie.

This 'HUGE' NYK Line 'vehicles carrier' container ship was just leaving the harbour
after unloading cargo across the harbour in Dartmouth.

It's latest location as of 7:30 last evening:

Amazing what one can find online.


  1. Online info can be scary, I have learnt to be so careful with my words anywhere. Odd to think was this the same one you saw come in, and now you know where it is, EXACTLY. And, I'm very glad it was underway using engines.

  2. These container ships don't look like they wold be very efficient do they? Sort of "blunt" - they wouldn't seem to cut through the waves very efficiently. But what do I know?

  3. i wonder why they leave empty. do tey stop somewhere close to pick up new cargo?

  4. Harmony Leader it says...what oh what can the cargo possibly be? Curious minds want to know ;) great photo Jim..oh ps you have to go see my post from yesterday, i want you to meet my grand-daughter lol

    1. That ship is FULL of automobiles, Lorraine..
      I will go to your post now.....
