Image for 3/24/11 - More Empty Coal Ships

Lately there has been a constant collection of empty coal ships waiting to get into port, sometimes as many as fifteen. I wonder what the crews do while they have to wait. Janet and I took a walk on Christmas Eve and saw the ships and I envisioned that the crew would have some tiny, artificial tree with make-shift ornaments and maybe a little egg nod. If they were lucky, the old, chubby cook would dress up as Santa and hand out a few candy bars as gifts. I bet they are mostly just bored watching TV.
