We thought that this was an old friend – just a different one

When we saw this coming through the lock, I rather assumed that it was Queen Galadriel. However, once it got out of the lock, I could see that it was one of the Dutch Tall Ships that was here a couple of weeks ago. It is the Morgenster – a Dutch registered tall ship.

Next, I liked the juxtaposition of the old and the new!

One in – the old – and one out – a new Fairline.

When the Morgenster got further down the Wet Dock, she proceeded to turn to tie up facing the lock. Firstly, some hard astern.
