I lived for a while in an apartment overlooking the cruise terminal. There is a daydreaming magic watching the cruise ships come and go.

I do love living near the water as I did in Seattle and I miss it now that I'm in Portland. There is a magic indeed in watching the ships come and go! Great shots for the day as always! Enjoy a wonderful weekend, Jose!!

Looks like you found the perfect spot (and beverage) to sit and watch the ships go by.
Loved your comment about Hercule Poirot. I can so see him coming down those stairs. When I was in London last November, I made a point of searching out the apartment building that was always used to depict where he lived. I found it but, wouldn't you know, it was covered in scaffolding for some renovations so I wasn't able to get the photo of it I wanted.

This looks like a river cruise. I'm thining of one of these.

@Birdman: It's the mouth of the Tagus River estuary. It will take just a couple of minutes for the ship to be in the ocean.

I really do like that contrast between the ship and the people in the first shot, Jose. Beautiful pics!
