  1. Passing ships

    Niow the weather is clear its blatently obvious - its an ammunition barge which works from the pontoon you mention Brian . That I think is close to the arsenal and then they go down to the loading dolphins just downstream from me.
  2. Passing ships

    My new home overlooks the Hamoaze a little upstream from the Naval Base at Devonport looking across to Bull Point and beyond I had not realised how good a view I would have of the ship movements it is going to be quite fascinating - watched HMS Monmouth come home the other day. But yesterday in the grey light of a drizzly misty day I suddenly saw what appeared to be a crane drifting down stream. Clear it was some sort of specialised vessel which came alongside one of the warships in the reach. I have no idea what its function or which vessel it was - any ideas ? Sorry about the quality of the pics - rotten day - windows of new place need cleaning and I am not familiar with the Admirals phone ! Any ideas ?

      Thank you :). And they said I'd never make it to 20, something to do with the way I drove my car :).

  4. What have you received today?

    Perhaps I should fit a webcam on my balcony !!
  5. What have you received today?

    Nope the docks bit is around the point - all I have obstructing the view at the moment is HMS OCEAN. And the train line to the bridge runs past just at the right distance and a bit below eyeline for spotting without intrusion sitting on the second balcony. AND I have just realised that I will have a ring side view of the national firework chamionships later in the year. And I also forgot to mention there is a sailing club about 400 yards away - though I will also renew my membership of the Royal Western YC.
  6. What have you received today?

    Today received two things. Fixed offer for our present house and an acceptance offer for our new apartment. Little gloat - we will overlook the junction of the Tamar and the Hamoaze with a view down Plymouth Sound one way tall ships, warships, yachts, Drakes Island, the Hoe, Pilgrim Fathers...... and the wonderful 1824 Brunel Railway bridge in the other - still carrying the main line trains.
