On the waterfront

The scene from the Victoria Pier in Lerwick earlier today. One of the benefits of being in Coalfishreek, the Capital of All the Shetlands is being able to revive the ancient habit of ship-spotting. Not much in the town bit of the harbour but a dirty great oil survey ship and the Banff fishing boat Searcher, just getting ready to hotfoot it for the fishing grounds. Now, chips!

Wow, what a great site for anyone interested in looking at ships/boatsvessels and going...any room for a stowaway? Whoops, changed my mind...The Shipping News!
