» Departing for Canary Islands
Another fine day in Southampton, and what do you think I was doing? Nope
- not basking in the sun sipping cocktails on a cruise ship - darn it!
:-/ I was down at Mayflower Park awaiting the departure of the Braemar
who was heading to the Canary Islands on a 12 night voyage.
managed to get a few shots earlier in the day when her many small flags
were on display, but in the later pictures these seem to have been
removed for some reason. At 5pm on the dot she slipped her moorings and
effortlessly drifted out onto the water then rather rapidly rotated on
the spot until she was facing the Solent.
A lovely peaceful send off for a small cruiser with a lot of charm.
