Inchinnan Bascule Bridge

A quick dash from home to get here in time - made it with less than a minute to spare.

Really pleased as this bridge doesn't lift too often - first time I've ever seen it this way.

They are expecting it to be open again for the barge to depart on Wednesday 19 June 2013.

Weekend Trip

Well my weekend aboard the SD Northern River comes to a close.

Up for breakfast at 07:00 - and a tasty breakfast it was too.

Then some fond farewells to the officers and crew who so kindly hosted the group.

Not such a sunny day for our trip back, but we're all in good spirits for the journey to Greenock on the SD Eva.
