  1. Some pics from a visit to Bergen in June 2005 Full album here https://flic.kr/s/aHsmQEvthT
  2. Few pics from our trip on Straitsman sailing the Cook Strait from Wellington to Picton in January this year. Lots more here https://flic.kr/s/aHskz7nGsu and from a trip in the opposite direction on Interlander Kaitaki in January 2016
  3. A few of the local ferry traffic that evening
  4. On Monday 3rd July 2006 we sailed on Bretagne from Portsmouth to St Malo. Here's a few pics taken from Bretagne of the various ferries that evening.
  5. According to the latest timetable on Irish site Kerrys last sailing from Rosslare to Bilbao is on Friday 30th October with Connemara taking over the route. Her first sailing ex Rosslare is on Wednesday 10th November at 10.15
  6. There's no doubt that masks have a place in fighting this pandemic. But what concerns me is that some people see wearing them as a replacement for social distancing. They act as if a mask is some sort of magic bullet that negates the need for other measures. πŸ™„
  7. Agreed if we were retired we,d have gone without hesitation and have had no bother doing the quarantine. As it stand we're both working part time and staying home for 14 days after 2 weeks in France isnt an option! So the June 2020 trip that went back to September 2020 has now moved to August 2021!
  8. Marco Polo is a regular visitor to Cork and I love photographing her. Hopefully she manages to survive the current crisis and will sail again, Couple of pics of her arriving and departing on 27th August 2015
  9. In the Ferry Nostalgia thread in the post about the St Patrick you can see the Russian liner Mikhail Lermontov. In February 1986 she sank in the Marlborough Sounds off the north coast of New Zealands south island. We were in Picton (which was the ships last port of call) in January and one of her lifeboats is on display outside a local shopping mall.
  10. RTE Radio documentary from 1993 called Ferry People about the St Killian II Ferry People
  11. That particular Casino always reminds me of somewhere about to close down. Half empty shelves and generally run down. Though its been like that for years😁
  12. Saw a handful on deck but in fairness it wasnt a morning to be up on deck 😁
  13. Few of the Pont arriving out of the mist and rain earlier this morning
  14. Was often thinking the same. Those houses by the lighthouse would be perfect! We can dream I suppose πŸ˜€
  15. Plenty of food for thought there. Thanks both πŸ‘
