They seem to be expanding their reefer freight. Looks like they have added a new row to stack in.

I see that. Perhaps sorting empties and loads? Or, for two different lines? The Port is due a Reefer Container
Vessel any minute now, by my own "yard check". Gotta' keep the saloons and hotel restaurants supplied...

See Map (as of 1045 HR EDT). There is a newer (2011 build) MARTINA C at the berth used by the RDN HOLLAND.
From Photos, today's vessel with lines of a competent "self load/ unload" Vessel.

Just noted arrival of a familiar (FLR?) COE with a Reefer (presumed MTY). The COE in a color reminding of our
Stateside, Penna. Truck Lines, or (for old timers), Braswell Motor Freight...

Auto Carrier calls? Aruba has a pop. at about 100K folks. How many new cars can they need? Some of the
action must be rental auto fleets turning over the rolling stock...

Just saw a green & silver Binder COE a few minutes ago. They've got some good looking cabovers down there. 8)

As of 1645 hours the Martina C appears to have offloaded lumber from the aft cargo hold......hatches are closing but not sure if that's it or not. :-\ Quite a few new vehicles being spotted in the same vicinity.......not sure what that's all about. ???

A couple of thousand at least. ;D I'd just turned on the computer @ 0745 this morning and first thing on the webcam is JEWEL OF THE SEAS passing by in review. :D Nothing like being out on deck or your own balcony and watching the ship dock. 8)

Note JEWEL at berth evidently a CARNIVAL Vessel. Itinerary for this voyage surely promoted with
Aruba as a major port of call. Unlike the PULLMANTUR MONARCH, Vessel did not leave town at end
of yesterday. MONARCH travelers do not get "a night on the town" at Aruba...

Also, yesterday and today, numerous "tour bus" coaches in view. Too, sighting of a smaller, touring
and sightseeing Vessel, departing Pier about 0845 HR.

Map reports a cargo vessel  CFS PAFILIA in and working at the "freight side" pier. Possibly, we will
see some loads of reefers arrive?

First time I've seen any activity on that little green boat. They are loading/unloading something.

Looks like we are working on the Marchaser this morning. Seems they have depleted their reefer inventory on dock as well.

Just saw an interesting truck driver through the port. Looked like it had a crane at each end of the chassis to lift a container off.
