The dredging starts

It was a lovely morning this morning – except for the very high winds. At one point, I had difficulty walking back from the quay edge to the apartment block door, the wind was so strong. You should check out this page in the Ipswich Star describing the Stack operation due to the closure of Felixstowe port yesterday due to these high winds.

Well as you can from the first shot, it was a really bright day.


The dredger UKD Sealion was out and about dredging the port.


Although, Norma was still berthed up on Gasworks Quay along with Alert


As the day went on the weather really deteriorated until, finally, around 3pm I took this shot from my hobby room window. (There was no way that I was going out on the balcony – smile).


As you can see, it’s no weather to be out and about. I will stick to making some hills on my model railway!
