Old Coconut Plantation

Sometimes , when out exploring this wonderful World, you happen upon some unique and almost forgotten places.

Places still lived on, or in, but a shadow of what they used to be. Sometimes as in this case , the shadow gets bigger, or should that be taller!

whilst out on a photography project , I saw this old Coconut plantation, dotted with Banana trees too, and went for a walk of serene calmness and natural beauty. A oasis of green in the busy town.

Worth sharing, i thought so....

Kri Bima Suci Indonesian Tall Ship

This 111 meter long tall ship from Indonesia docked at the deep port in Phuket. An invitation via the local press was given to members of the public to come and visit it, and so I did.

It was in Phuket as part of the 2019 Nation Ambassador Sail (NAS), an annual program of the Indonesian Navy to strengthen Indonesia's commitment to regional security, peace and stability. The theme for this year’s program is "Maritime Fulcrum Brotherhood".

It was a real treat fro anyone not having got close to one of these magnificent Ships.

The KRI Bima Suci is one of the tallest ships owned by the Indonesian Navy, besides KRI Dewa Ruci. The vessel is 111.2 metres long, and 13.65m wide draws a depth of 5.95m. Its tallest mast stretches 49m from the deck surface.

This ship – which can accommodate up to 209 personnel consisting of 35 officers, 73 sailors and 101 cadets who are 83 Indonesian Navy Cadets n opportunity to practice their capabilities in basic navigation and astronomical navigation.

The program also aims to provide the 83 Indonesian Navy Cadets n opportunity to practice their capabilities in basic navigation and astronomical navigation.
