While commuting to Lisbon...

(Photo by Sailor Girl of part of a beautiful German-made engine, very similar to Creoula's former engine, now resting in peace on the south bank of River Tagus)
On my today's trip to Lisbon from Cascais, along the ocean and the River Tagus, I was lucky to watch:
  1. "MSC OPERA" departing Lisbon, heading somewhere into the Ocean;
  2. "COMANDANTE JOÃO BELO" (former F480, already at the Atlantic) and "COMANDANTE SACADURA CABRAL" (former F483, passing under Lisbon's Bridge), two beautiful ships from Portuguese Navy recently sold to the Uruguay Navy, training the new crew before they depart, at the end of this month, to their new home...
  3. "THE SCHOLAR SHIP", ahhh..., a transformed passenger ship hosting academic students on semester-long voyages around the world. Participants from diverse cultural backgrounds come together to co-create life-changing experiences that develop their intercultural competence and foster friendships reaching the far corners of the world;
  4. "MS NOORDAM", a beautiful passenger ship from Holland America Line;
  5. And too many fishermen's ships, sailing ships, windsurfers, and so on...

And YES I did come to work. At least phisically...
