The Ships Helping Hands

One of our very valuable connections we have when in a port is our shipping agent.  In Pointe Noire we were working with Necotrans.  For them they are used to ships coming and going regularly but we were a little different as they would have to look after us for 10 months.  They have been so good to us and it has been nice to get to know them on a social level too.  Anne Marie would often be bringing a group of ladies over to visit and have a tour of the ship and enjoy a starbucks coffee!  By the end of our stay we reckoned she could actually take the tour herself.  Her and her husband, Denis, were also very generous and took us out to their beach hut a few times.  It was nice to relax with them and others whilst the kebabs cooked on the BBQ and enjoy the cheese and paté that Denis had brought back from his last trip to Paris.  
Thank you to all of you - You truly spoiled us and we are forever grateful for you sharing your lives with us.
