Oceana (II)
Oceana returned to Southampton on the 26th January 2015 from a Caribbean roundtrip sporting new funnel livery.  Unlike Oriana, she had the Rising Sun attached to the funnel.  Since I was down in Hythe that morning anyway, I thought I'd get some photos.  G Poseidon had been here since arriving at 10.50am on the 16th after being damaged in bad weather when some cargo broke free.  She was originally in 101 but had to move for the Höegh Osaka.  Then she was in 104 before making way for Lomax so was in 106.  Galacia was behind her in 105 while tug Lomax had returned the day before still with bent mast in 104.  Back down for sailaway and you could hear eight bells on her horn at 4pm before even getting there.  She was going to be late then so good job she didn't bring the rain as usual!
