Just about to enter Douglas Harbour. Virtually all the open land between the houses and the cliff edge behind the ship (known as Banks Howe) has now been built on right down to the cliff edge with luxury houses.

My 1st ship in 73, was alongside in Douglas during the Summerland tragedy, lucky to be here. Great ship and crew, worked on her again in 74 during the Easter period and Tynwald for the summers season, happy days.
