Hi M

Yes, probably a little too dark at 17.00 this time of the year - still, might get her outbound :lol:

Hi Steve,

The latests ETA which was received this morning was PM on the 18th Sunday

I'll let you know if we get a firm order.

Hi M

Well at least the Port is making some money out the recession, although I've noticed the lack of feeders in recent weeks.

If you get the time- send me a message when there is any firm times for the inbound ship :-)

Hi Steve,

Yes I think the recession is hitting hard esp in the "Container Trade" it would seem, I believe we are in line to receive another two to " lay_up ".

You will get a great pic if you can get round to the North Side early on a sunny morning ....well, before 10 ish :-D

We have a " unusual " visitor due over the weekend the [b]BBC RHINE[/b] due with Windmill Blades for the NaREC testing Facility....should be worth a trip thro ?????

Hi M

Interesting to learn that she is in Blyth - another two of Costa's Container Ships are on Lay By down on the Tees (opposite The Riverside Stadium). Might see if I can get a shot of her from the North Bank :-)
