General cargo, BBC Finland with lots of containers, Eemslift Nadine outbound and survey vessel HMS Echo at Northumbrian Quay
I took a drive to the South side today to get a shot of offshore support vessel VOS Sugar as it leaves after dark. Container vessel Elbstrom passed and I could not resist a shot. There is a lot of work going on in the old McNulty’s yard in preparation for the Dogger Bank Windfarm offices and a huge drilling rig where the Commercial Hotel once stood. All roads that led to the ‘Rosie’ (Rose and Crown) are all blocked off too.
