387 Scarlet Lady Tugs

The Scarlet Lady, the aptly named Virgin Cruise Ship is not a small vessel. It looks like the tug is about to get run over. But when you see them in action you begin to appreciate not only the power of these little vessels, but the consummate mastery with which they are captained. It was stationary, The Scarlet Lady was heading right for it, and the tug just started scooting backwards, the power and agility of these little craft make watching them at work an absolute delight.

RThings like this are one of the aspects of my morning walk that I enjoy most. It’s like that job where you never know what is going to happen from one day to the next. Yesterday, one of the Marella cruise ships, Explorer 2 was in. I didn’t see her arrive, but hopefully I will do at some point when she returns. She’s not as big as the discoverer ship we went to Iceland and the Fjords aboard, but still nice looking.

On a side comment, I was travelling back over Portchester hill this evening. I had to stop to have a look at The Scarlet Lady in port, all lit up. For the most part, Portsmouth is not a high rise city, and even from that distance you could see how the ship was dwarfing that part of the city she was near.

Whilst the rest of the walk was routine, I had a problem with my radio, both batteries failed. I must admit, I new the second battery would be low, but it failed quicker than I thought it would. For some reason Echolink wouldn’t let me connect. But, it was an enjoyable walk nonetheless.
