Cookie arrives into Portsmouth
Weds March 3rd and our container with Cookie and house gear is unloaded at Portsmouth from the Fyffes ship M/V Elsebeth. The guys at MMD Shipping did a great job of getting all cleared in with customs and we were ready to go and pick it all up on Friday. My stepbrother - Barnes and brother in laws - Dave and Phil all rallied to our help to give some muscle to the project. Huge thanks to all 3 who gave up a day off work to come and help out. I hired a big van and car trailer to handle the load and we had a perfectly clear and crisp winters day for the drive up and back. Special thanks to David Spencer and Gary Nolan of MMD for allowing us to unload at the port.
