Some more from a chilly morning at Corio Bay

Reverse parking a ship.

turns on sixpence/ five cents piece.

I have seen people driving small cars

make a real mess of reverse parking.

This was such a smooth operation.

    • Thanks Raewyn. It was fascinating to see the process. At least for me it was. I have lived inland most of my life and certainly have never seen tugs at work previously when near the coast. Portland, a place we seldom visited, is the only decent port on Victoria’s South West Coast, and that was an hour’s drive from where I lived.
