ABC WEDNESDAY - # 08 (H)

(Photo by Sailor Girl)
In HOLGER's dream, «T.S. HAMBURG/ MAXIM GORKIY» is still in Hamburg, and he's standing at the bridge and can see the harbour. He says it is only a dream, but it's a nice one... I know how you are feeling, we had the same experience when our former beautiful ships were sold to scrap and we could not do anything about it...
So, «H» is also for «HAMBURG», the port, the city I love and the friends I made during the tentative to rescue the ship we were not able to save from scrap in Alang Beach. One of them is «HOLGER», who has just shown me a link to THIS PAGE with information regarding former Hamburger and later Portuguese Tugs!...

I feel so bad but I do have the Maxim on my computer desktop. Or background or whatever it is called. It is/was a most beautiful ship. The picture will make us all cry. MB

Perfect photo of a beautiful ship. I love the tree covered hill rising behind it and the reflection on the smooth water.
