oops, it’s been a week – what HAVE I been up to??

well I finally got a new phone so I’ve been playing with that and trying to remember to keep it hidden from my granddaughter when I’m playing with her so that it continues to work 😉
I read The Martian by Andy Weir – kept meaning to get to it all summer but it was the fact that the movie opened this weekend that kicked me into gear to get it downloaded at last. Fun read, let’s hope the movie does it justice.
My music of choice has been Hozier and James Vincent McMorrow for what seems like months now but I discovered Higher Truth by Chris Cornell this week and have been playing nothing but that for the last few days.
We were on our home way past the docks on Saturday night and saw what seemed to be a pretty big cargo ship moored there. I looked up the vessel on marine shipping.com only to discover that it’s probably the biggest container ship that the Port of Seattle has ever handled.
CMA CGM CASSIOPEIA
Built:2011
Size:363 x 46 m
Draught:15.5 m
Gross Tonnage:131332 t
Net Tonnage:59901 t
Deadweight:128550 t

I tried to get a picture of it but it was close to impossible in the dark with all the lights on near it, plus as you can tell from this one, David wasn’t actually going to slow down anyway! 🙂 IMG_4975

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
