  Something to do on a Sunday afternoon
by iandsmith

Harbourside, watching the ships come in. It something I usually do in a waterside cafe on a Sunday afternoon; you get the sailing boats as well.
This carrier, with battened hatches (you can tell as it's loaded to the Plimsol Line) is just coming around the end of the Nobbys breakwall prior to entering the harbour.
