All photos taken in June. Summer appears to have arrived with plenty of dry weather so far. Plenty of ships during the week but mostly regulars at weekend when I can get out.
Another grey morning and a first for me, a large tanker in the Phillips inset dock.
A little later a longer range view of SUVOROVSKY PROSPECT.
ALFA BALTICA sailing for Le Havre. Having missed her arriving the day before, I nearly didn’t catch her sailing as is started to rain as she left the berth and I considered leaving at that point. However it soon passed and the lighting improved as she made her way out.
CANSU Y sailing for Hull.
The Sietas built VANQUISH arriving in the river…
