Altona Oil Refinery

The 3D5S trip for September was to Altona Oil Refinery. Meeting at the guild, and travelling together, we managed a side stop at docklands, where ships were being loaded with their containers. The structures here are amazing.

The trip to the Refinery had involved liaising with the public relations people who were very helpful and we were able to take photographs from around the perimeter without the interference. Security is obviously tight, sitting on all that flammable liquid must make you nervous at the best of times.

It is an amazing facility, which I don't think that those of us who have only ever driven past, are really ever aware of. There are pipes everywhere, it makes you wonder what they are all for.
It's going to be interesting to see how these translate into crochet and weaving when we meet next month. A fabulous trip.
