I do like these cloudy skies.
Firstly, the helping hand. One motor boat moving an un-powered one.
Then, the big Ahhhhhhh… The swans have been away for a while. They returned today with a few extras in tow.
Having worried about what the grey “thingy” was for, I have finally got a shot of it in action. They have been cleaning some of the buoys and use the crane to lift them off the Port work boat.
They fitted a mast to this one last week. Here it is taking its first shakedown cruise.
I missed posting this the other evening. This is what I used to call a YABS – Yet Another Boring Sunset. Still, it is pretty.
Not quite what you thought.
This fishing boat has been tying up outside for the last few weeks. It comes in, unloads its fish – loads up with ice and goes out again. As it moors where Suntis goes, it has to do a quick double shuffle to get out of the way when necessary.
What better way to spend a Saturday evening than partying on Victor. The beautifully maintained Thames Barge was off out to the Orwell Estuary in the early evening with music playing and a crowd of people enjoying themselves. No doubt, they will return around 10-ish, still having a good time.
Oh,by the way, Suntis is currently moving through the Kiel Canal on its way to Varberg. The turnaround time in the summer seems to be quicker than in the winter – no doubt they sell more structural wood to the building trade.
