This photo was taken last evening shows the VOLENDAM departing Wellington for Napier. The vessel had arrived for Picton the night before, her passengers lucky enough to be in Wellington on one of those special days - the sun shone and there was NO wind. The rail ferry ARAHURA is also outbound and he
What a fine picture, Emmanuel! Three in one - superb - and such a contrast in styles and sizes. What could be better than that? It must be wonderful to see that on your doorstep. Hope you are well. Snow here in Scotland today...while you bask in sunshine. My thanks for this - a real pleasure to see it. Donald
Hi Donald-thanks for your comments. The light was fading fast when I took the photo. It was a cracker day, not that we have had a lot lately but not that unusual for the time of the year - lots of wind ! it will hopefully settle after Christmas. Donald we are blessed with an excellent view from work - heaven for ship lovers.You stay close to the fire and have a very Merry Christmas.
Mate I had to leave the building to get the shot - not so easy at present as the new building is in front of the old so I have to climb into the garden to get a decent shot looking towards Pencarrow and the harbour entrance.
it will be a couple of months before we move into the new station, just waiting for a mast to be built and radar etc to be fitted - in time I will take some photos and post them on the site.
All the best for Christmas.
