A marvellous day for November this morning so I sat in the cafe at the dock viewpoint to see if anything happened, and also to observe the minute's silence at 11 o'clock, as relayed to us from the cenotaph in Whitehall. I have a few people to remember at that time.
Anyhow my wait was rewarded when the megamax Ever Golden crept into view rounding Landguard Point on its way to the dock, accompanied by 3 tugs who were soon going to earn their money.
The tugs had to turn the boat round to go alongside the berth, facing down river. One is shoving the stern round while another, which is out of sight behind the berth is pulling on the stern. The third is pulling the bow out, and slowly it came across the stream
Half way round
Nearly there, note how hard the tug is working by the stream of disturbed water thrown out by its thruster
Most of the time I was taking tese pics a young starling was hanging round hoping for crumbs. Unlucky.
I was off home for lunch
Man is not lost, only temporarily uncertain of his position
Another lovely Sunday outing, Mossie. I hope I have mentioned before how much I appreciate that you always acknowledge the skilled work of the tugs. This time, your pictures and explanation of them doing their jobs was just wonderful.
