Sunday Leisure Time

Headed up to Renfrew with the intention of getting a few photos of the Bascule Bridge raising and lowering, and of the small tugs transporting the barge up the River Cart for dredging work.

Sadly I was too late and missed that, but carried on round to where the dredging was taking place and managed to secure a few from there.

Not sure when the River Cart was last dredged but gather it was many years ago.

Then after a quick grab shot of a jet about to take off, headed to the Erskine Bridge to catch the bulk carrier as she passed upriver on her way to Glasgow.
