Slow #boat to #China seen leaving docks in #Essex
... The lobster Smack pub in Canvey Island it's a strangely isolated pub at the very tip of dry land and dwarfed by the seawall, but its a great place to observe shipping from. Good Ale too. Often as you drive into the car park you find yourself craning (good appropriate pun) your neck to look up at the nearby ships. Its now on its way to Singapore. It weighs 145,000 tons and can carry 14,500 containers !!
