We had a new arrival yesterday – well not really new as she was here a few years ago – T/S Royalist – the Sea Cadet training ship. She is an impressive sloop (is that the right word for a two masted sailing ship?).
She had a full compliment of cadets on board, all under strict orders.
While I was taking these images I noticed that Alert was also in.
While out photographing ships I felt that I needed to update everyone on the state of Patteson Road. It is now closed for a good while. People don’t seem to realise that by going down Cliff Road and round via Ship Launch Road and Helena Road, it is possible to still get to the waterfront and to the Aurora Car park. Anyway, here is the current state of play!
