Rhu Spit Activity

I arrived nice and early to get some shots of the outbound US Navy Virginia Class submarine.

The heavens opened and the rain came down heavy as I parked - not encouraging.

Fortunately the shower passed and I made my way down to the beach at Rhu Spit.

She left as expected and I then stayed on to catch the Belgian minesweeper coming in to berth at the Faslane Naval Base.

Also managed a few shots as the light changed as the sun mace up over the marina.
