If you are a sad individual like me, then you cannot fail to be impressed by the sheer scale of the container operation. There is a poetic majesty about giant machines I do love being a sad soul !!!

Was here only yesterday As recommended by a local I got talking to.

There is a fort and museum just beside this viewing point that is well worth a visit and should entertain you... More
