A Changing View













There always seems to be something of interest to see from my parents-in-love balcony. This little cargo ship, the Norfolk Guardian, had been sitting offshore for a few hours. You can see it in the second last photo here, taken a couple of hours earlier, waiting for high tide to enable it to cross the river bar and move safely up river where it will undergo any necessary maintenance, refuelling and reloading before  it's return journey to Norfolk Island.

A few minutes later I turned the camera east to capture the lovely scene below which I posted late that same day.

I think this boat is great! I could sit and watch large boats all day, wondering where they're coming from and going to.
