The attached photo provides a good view of how Dammam Port looked when you were there, Johnny. What you saw disappearing into the distance was a 6 mile long causeway providing road and rail access to the port. Ship’s personnel were not allowed ashore so calling there would have been tedious, especially after a lengthy wait at the anchorage.
