Stella Ada - Tugs at Work

An early start as I arose at 03:39 to dress, breakfast, pop in to Tesco to pick up some buns, then head to the James Watt Dock where the Svitzer tug 'Anglegarth' awaited my arrival.

Safely aboard we proceeded down river to Hunterston and I was hopeful the weather may improve and we get some better light.

Sadly this wasn't to be as it stayed very dull and the rain persisted in hanging around just enough to catch the camera lens.

This is the first Blog from today and more will follow.

A big thanks go to the Svitzer personnel (you know who you are) who made this trip possible, and who went out of their way to make me part of the crew for the day, and to set me up for my shots.
