On one of may roll arounds there was, on Friday, an interesting couple of ships/boats in the Wet Dock. First up was a regular – the HM Border Force Cutter Seeker.
I am getting a new wheelchair this week. The important aspect, as far as this blog is concerned, is that it has a bigger battery so I should be able to get around to the Island again )my current battery is wearing out and not holding a charge as long as it used to). That means that I can gets some shots from the other side and not have the edge of the dock hiding some of the boat.
Secondly, as a first for a long time, we had a fishing boat in the Wet Dock. This is one that I hadn’t seen before. It was sitting there drying its nets.
Lastly, a couple of days ago I was having a coffee with my wife and mother-in-law in the Aurora. The new owners are making a good impression. I also met John who lives up the end of Patteson Road. I didn’t quite grasp where he lives so maybe he can e-mail me. Whilst I was sitting there a survey ship came past. I have not seen this one before. This is the MV Northern Wind.
Don’t forget that you can e-mail me at my email@example.com.
