Thank you for the info Dee. I've always wondered what they were.
Pat...they're ships. They are used as 'floating storage'. This is where oil traders keep oil at sea until the price rises – effectively making money while doing nothing. However, keeping oil on tankers isn’t cheap as there are shipping rates and insurance costs involved.
It would be nice if they would make it pan slowe
When this cam pans the harbor entrance and then sweeps back the other way, what are all those lights way out in the background? Are they ships or are there other islands back there or what?
Going by the pan cam she's slowly moving out towards the middle of the harbou
You're welcome Carol. Hopefully you got to see Encore leaving last evening !
Thank you very much for replying Ann. I tried googling, but didn't come up with anything really.. A good time was had by all anyway.... they were there till nearly midnight. I did take photo's, but don't know if they will get shown. I did not see Mein Schiff come in, but did manage to take several pic's of Encore. It is not showing departure time though, just have to keep looking. Enjoy your day!
Good morning Carol, it might have to do with the "Sette Giugno" national holiday that's coming up on June 7th(Sette Giugno actually means 7th June). It commemorates the riots of 1919, in which four Maltese nationals died when fired upon by British soldiers. A series of activities are planned to mark four great events which shaped the life of the Maltese people. These are the 40th anniversary of Freedom Day; the 100th anniversary of the Sette Giugno events; the 15th year of Malta’s membership in the European Union and the end of the Cold War.
Wonder what they are setting up for at the saluting battery. Today 1st June. Anyone know?
I would love this cam. to be timed so that it showed the salute at noon being done, It always just misses it.
Yep, it has not changed much in over 20 years
We saw the map a few years ago. We thought it could have done with a bit of attention though.
I was in Kalkara as I walked over all of Malta. As this cam pans right past Kalkara Parish Church, just hidden from view is Miniature Malta. It is a concrete model of the island group. Not buildings, just the land mass. It can be seen on digital maps
Good day Patti, hope you got to see the 3 ships that came in over the past hour: Riviera, Sea Cloud and Marella Celebration.
