The weather today was overcast in the morning/sunny by midday. The anchor was dropped at 1.30am just of the coast of Oporto. The anchors where raised, just after breakfast. We came alongside at dock 1 in Leixoes. The crew were eager to get off the ship after being on board and at sea for 5 days to stretch their legs on land. What a sight to see everyone waiting for their passports, as they were needed to get in and out of the port area. All stood queuing in single file to depart the ship. The expression like rats of a sinking ship came to mind.
