看貨櫃船 harbour watching

2015.9.11 | 博寮水域 lamma channel

最近才有這個發現,本來的尋常事,但知道後就體察到現實世界的運作都有根據的,各職其事,饒有趣味。

說的是,身在香港島的話,你只會在西邊看到貨櫃船而不是東邊。

原因是

我們的貨櫃物流運作在葵青貨櫃碼頭,維港的西北邊。

所以,又稱為集裝箱的船隻進入本港水域,集中藍巴勒海峽、博寮海峽流動。所以香港仔、華富村、南丫島的居民的看海風景,跟太古城、筲箕灣、杏花邨的很不一樣。

it is a trivial of the city. but i really enjoy this little ‘discovery’ about our water. it adds so much more pleasure and a little depth when i enjoy the scenery of our harbour.

ask a hongkonger living say at wah fu estate and one at heng fa chuen who have the luck and luxury having the sea view what are their common sea watching experience. you might imagine they are seeing pretty much the same, a nice wide horizon of water body.

well. the one at wah fu estate could tell you about the many colours of big boxes on carriers with shipping company names boldly written on, as container ships frequent along lamma channel and rambler channel every day for their destination at kwai tsing container port. this is a scenery that does not happen on the east side of the island.
