Oriana (II)
Just Oriana in Ocean Terminal on the 17th May 2010.  In fact, after the four ships plus various car carriers, the docks looked very bare indeed.  I was picked up from the marina at 11.30am.  It was an odd day.  One minute sunny and boiling hot, the next rain-threatening thick dark clouds and windy.  We sauntered down towards Calshot and I managed to get a few snaps of the lovely P&O girl.
At Netley were two hovercraft belonging to the Royal Marines apparently.  One had broken down and was being towed by the other to Hythe Marine Park for repairs.  We stopped to let a car carrier pass then slowly moved towards the Solent as they crossed Southampton Water and passed us.
As we returned to the marina to drop me off, I got a few more shots of her in the sunlight.
