Ships Attending: {Marco Polo}
Date: {07/06/04}

Yep, its true folks, I was kept standing on the dockside for quite a while .. I was positive it was a 6pm departure! But it turned out to be 9pm .. still managed to grab some food in-between. As it turned out, the shots I got earlier in the evening are quite a nice contrast to the ones I got later on as the sun was setting and the ship looks very different.

If only she's been tugged out about 15mins earlier the light would have been just that bit brighter across her stern. Still, nevermind, her lights came on and Marco Polo's stunning blue hull was soon on its way up Southampton Water. The sky this evening over the docks was unbelievable - I've thrown in a couple of extra shots just to try and show you!
