Watching for Pirates and Smugglers!

Hi Woofers!

It's us again!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

We have noticed that there seems to be more container ships heading up the Thames towards the Gateway Project than a few months ago.

The Container Port at Thamesport doesn't seem so busy, there isn't the number of trucks hauling containers across the Hoo Peninsular, maybe they are all going up the Thames to off load?

With all this extra traffic we have seen the customs boat off Grain, waiting just off shore. Today it was parked just beyond the low water mark and mixed with the sun rise it looked rather dramatic!

Keeping an eye open for  smugglers!
 Just for a change the rain kept off today but it was still too clod to take the ferrets out for a walk and to be honest, they said they would rather stay indoors having a good rampage!

Rampaging wears you out!
 Lunchtime we were back down the sea front and Old Two Legs had brought the tennis ball so we had a game of chase. That is, OTL throws the ball and I run after it, then I run off down the field while OTL chases me trying to get the ball back so he can throw it and I run after it, then I run down the field and.....well you get the idea and it does help him stay fit!

Catch me if you can!
 Down on the sea front we saw that the customs ship was still on station. We have seen it in the past, moored at anchor, then, without any warning, suddenly took off and headed out to sea!

Not today, it just sat there watching the ships go past!

Enjoying the afternoon sun!
Back home we spent the afternoon snoozing 'cos OTL was busy getting the orders all packed and down to the carriers.

He is such a busy little OTL!

Let's hope we get some sun over the weekend!

See you tomorrow.
