I subscribe to the notifications issued by The Queens Harbour Master. Several weeks ago QHM issued a notice that dredging activity would be taking place in Haslar Marina. It was due to start about now. They’ve been at it for a couple of days now.
Taken this morning, this picture shows two of three ships, the barge closest to us is full of the dredged material, There was a chap on the bridge drinking a mug of tea, preparing to take the barge out to the spill area, which I think is beyond the Nab Tower.
Mary Mouse, the green light ship in the distance, is due to be moved as part of the dredging activity. The lightship, which is a rather nice restaurant (which I am really pleased survived Covid) has been where it is since we moved to Gosport.
Every morning this week, I arrive at the WaveGuard expecting to see it gone. A sufficiently unusual occurrence that I want to record it. I’d like to be there when they move the ship, but I have no idea when that will be. Perhaps I should read QHM’s notice again. That might tell me.
