Great shot there, Maestro, I was down but my timing was 'el crappo' - called at that nice Waterfront Restaurant at the top end of South Harbour Street and, just as the sweet was being served, I saw Frances looking over my shoulder and she said "That's your ship just coming in" Shockarooney - so it was, knew it was her as I saw the green hull. Oh, well, can't get them all. Recommend that restaurant, though, quite excellent ! Then spent a good half hour trying to get a photograph of a very unusual and large bird that was almost certainly a heron - but am no expert so photo would have been handy as the Webmaster is very well up on his burds - but don't tell his Missus !

This one is owned by Bibby Line, hence the name - one of their dabbles in the short sea market.

Think she is the sole one of this type in their fleet, seems odd to enter the market with just one but she has been running for a few years now.
Still the oldest (?) British shipping company, I think.
