     One day, when I was standing on the port, I saw a ship approaching the port. It was the same ship, which had sailed further after leaving me behind, struggling in the sea. When the captain of the ship saw me, he was greatly surprised to find me alive. He and the other crew members hugged me with happiness. The captain handed over my goods to me, which had been left on the ship.
On a fine day, when Sindbad was standing on the port, he noticed a ship coming closer to the port. To his surprise, it was his old ship (the one he had missed during the incident with a huge water animal). Sindbad felt happy on seeing the ship. When the ship came closer, Sindbad felt extreme happiness.
