Photographer's Note

Where are we ?

Welcome on board the tug Ocean Hercules. Property of Group Ocean . This image was taken this morning , as I boarded the vessel Atlas-C . On our way we passed the MV Federal Margaree . She is the one you seen ahead. I will add a photo of the Atlas-C as a WS.

Captain Simoneau is our skipper.

The ship arrived from Pohang, South Korea and Shanghai, China on her maiden voyage. Her berth is not available, so she has to wait for a few days at the anchorage. On board with me , officials and a load of fresh provisions and supplies for the ship and crew.

On Christmas Eve, I would like to dedicate this photo to all the seafarers currently on board a ship , away from their families and homes. Having experienced that myself a few years ago (LOL!), I know how difficult it can be for all these fathers, and their families. The celebrations on board are very sober now and quiet. Most of the ships have no alcool at all on board, except at times beer on special occasions.

Enjoy this magical Night peacefully and happily, remembering how lucky you are to be together. It is not the case for a lot of workers and seafarers.
