Ship loading


My husband Tony was working at a ship yard in Pittsburg California. First he was working at the Shell Refinery in Martinez California. At the refinery he would load trucks with coke. Not the coke you are thinking. After they make gas, jet fuel, oil and all that good stuff. The coke is the left overs they can not use. So they sell it to other┬ácountry’s to use for electricity. Then Tony was transferred to Pittsburg to where the truck take the coke from Shell. Here is a ship loading up with coke.

When Tony would work on the ship he would have to watch the loader. There would be about 5 big holds to load up. So he would have to check to make sure it was not getting to full then move it to the next hold. It was remote-controlled.

There is Tony waving at Brittany and I we were there to pick him up from work. We loved it when it was ship loading time.

Here he is done with his shift and ready to go home. He worked 7:00am to 7:.30pm or 7:00pm to 7:30am.

Just thought I would share this with you ­čÖé
