    I think, but I'm not sure, that the fishing club I photographed at one of its early outings, has saved up for a wee boat to take out on the water. I'll have to do some digging to find out if it's theirs ornot but we don't see many of these for some reason - it's all minesweepers, tugs, cruises, cargo or subs round this neck of waters.

    Seven Seas Splendour was here yesterday. At this distance, the nightmare scenario of 750 paying passengers plus however many crew, swilling around in a floating petri dish doesn't look all that bad.

    From right to left we had the Navy, Cunard Cruises and a stark reminder of how treacherous the sea can be: MV Captayannis is the dark lozenge on the left, locally known as The Sugar Boat.
