#Wednesday Walk - A Peaceful Day in Wilson's Wharf.

in Wednesday Walk2 months ago

This post is for the #wednesdaywalk challenge and the #makemesmile challenge collaboration. This collaboration initially took place once a month, but due to its popularity, @tattoodjay (of the #wednesdaywalk) and @elizacheng (of #makemesmile) decided to make it a weekly thing.

If you want to know more about the rules, visit this post by @tattoodjay where you will find all the rules at the bottom of his post after you've enjoyed his beautiful photos from his walk.

During our last visit to the Port Natal Maritime Museum, I was disappointed to learn that we couldn't go onboard the J.R. More tugboat.

Last weekend we decided to see if we would be able to get on board the boat by now. Saturday it was pouring down with rain the whole day, but on Sunday morning we headed out. It was still cloudy and the rain could start at any moment again, but we decided to give it a go.

We arrived at the museum at about 10h15 and learned they are only open from 11h00 on Sundays and public holidays.

So, we had some time on our hands, and with Wilson's Wharf being right next to the museum, we decided to go for a walk at Wilson's Wharf.

At Wilson's Wharf, the first boat that caught my attention was the Serendipity.

Let's zoom in to take a closer look...

Looking across the water at one of the clubhouses in Wilson's Wharf, with some yachts in the foreground in the water. There was activity there with some people outside the building.

Walking down to the bottom end, looking at how many boats were being anchored there.

Quite a few of these boats had people on them. Some people were just relaxing while others looked like they might be preparing to head out on their boats.

On the one boat was a team of guys who looked as if they were preparing to head out soon.

Going to the far end of Wilson's Wharf, which is more focused on entertainment for the public, we found this boat, the Spirit Sulis. It belongs to the Adventure Worx company that takes people out on pleasure cruises.

By now, it was close to 11h00 and we decided to move towards the Port Natal Maritime Museum.

The Museum was open, but as we approached the museum, I noticed some activity in the docs behind the museum...yet I couldn't get a nice, clear view.

Entering the property of the museum, I found a space to the side, before going to the boats and everything on display in the museum, from where I could get a nice view of the action taking place in the doc behind the museum.
These two tugboats were maneuvering around and I was able to get some photos...

And that's all for today, folks! I'll share more about our visit to the museum on Friday.

Looks like you had a lovely morning out down at Wilson's Wharf, all those boats lolling around makes one wonder from whence they came or where are they going.

Always enjoy watching tug boats readying themselves to go out assisting ships into harbour.

Yes, we had a lovely morning indeed! And yes, one can only think and wonder...I suppose we can consider that part of the fun...😉.

I agree with you!

Thank you for the tokens, @joanstewart! I do appreciate them!

I love being on the water and it wasn't until my 2 hour sail on the tall ship in Sydney that I realised how long it has been and how much I missed it!

And now you make me miss it again!

It sure is lovely being on the water! I'm glad I could "awaken" some nice memories again, @chocolatescorpi😄👍!

Thank you for stopping by and sharing with us! I do appreciate it! Have a great weekend!

Oh yes but it was the sail on the Tall ship in Sydney Harbour that really got my sea legs going!

I would LOVE to do that again, but for a few days...

I hope you can do it again...SOON!! And for a few days😉🙏!

Yeah me too!

I would need much MUCH more hive than what I have to do that though...

Hahaha...that makes sense👍!

What a beautiful place to wander around. To bad you couldn’t visit that boat earlier. But had a nice stroll around anyway. Thanks for sharing these beautiful captures @jacoalberts 👋🏻😊

Yup...couldn't get on to the boat last time...but we went back. But being a bit early, we had a nice place to spend some time wandering around.

You're welcome, @littlebee4! I'm glad you could enjoy it with us😉👍!

Have an awesome day!

WOW so many nice boats there and a lot of money floating on the water

Thanks for joining the Wednesday Walk :)

Well said... The boats are nice indeed, but... "a lot of money floating in the water"...

Have a nice day, @tattoodjay👍!

Quite a few of these boats had people on them. Some people were just relaxing while others looked like they might be preparing to head out on their boats.

Some of the people maybe even live on their boats. I heard about this. I even thought about living on a sailboat. But this lifestyle needs a bigger income than what I receive nowadays.

You are right. Some of those people might even live on their boats.

As a matter of fact, the neighbor that used to live next door to me until April of this year bought a sailboat for him and his family to cruise around the world. I spoke to him about a month ago and they are currently in Cape Town. Apparently, they will leave Cape Town by end of November and come past here (Durban) on their way to Richardsbay on the Noth Coast. I don't know yet where they would be heading after that.

But as you say, it's expensive. He sold two of his three farms, bought the boat, and now they are living on the boat.
