Some of you may remember back in April
we spent a long weekend in Adelaide
One afternoon we nipped down to the port
to see a naval ship that was in town 
and was open to the public
as part ot the Anzac Day celebrations
Walking back to the car we stopped to look back up the water
and watched as this whopping great ship passed by
Named CSL Thevenard
it is owned by Canadian-owned company CSL Australia,
cost $60 million to build and is the first new ship commissioned in Australia in 15 years.
Raw sugar to coal seems to be quite a range
but the info below explains all about the equipment needed
to load and unload
Sometimes we forget the ‘big’ ships that use our oceans 
Necessary for making trade and life possible
in different parts of the world
My parents would have said it was part of the Merchant Navy
‘The Merchant Fleet of the country’
I’m not sure if that term is used in Australia
I’ve looked at various websites
and they all seem to be geared to war time information
Looks like I need to do more digging:))
Heres a few links concerning this rather large ship
to see more Watery Wednesday posts from around the world
