Around Port Glasgow & Greenock waterfronts

Well, I met this guy and we chatted. He was saying how quiet the river is these days with little in the way of shipping on the River.

I explained that there was actually a lot more than he might think.

The following are just some of the vessels spotted within a two hour  period - and yes - the weather was THAT good.

PS - I haven't included the seal and flight of three swans, nor the 'Ayton Cross' and  'Battler' as they went past on their way to harbour.

'Clyde Clipper' approaches Ferguson's Quay where 'Anglegarth' is berthed

'Stavros C Niarchos' departs from Greenock

'Ben-Crom' goes about her business

'Balticdiep' heads up to Glasgow

 'Narina' speed past Custom House Quay

'Bondenau' heading up to Glasgow

'SD Nimble' pass on her way to Faslane

'Ingrid' passes on her way out of the River Clyde
