    I know there are some on the group who are keen on shipping.
    After the large numbers of cruise ships that were off Weymouth in lock down we now seem to have rotating numbers that form a flotilla off Swanage. One day last week there were six, the most I have seen. Today only five. Thought I ought to at least have a couple of record shots (on a dull day) IMG_5085.JPG IMG_5079.JPG
    According to the local shipping map from L to R
    Jewel of the Seas
    Allure of the Seas
    Aurora
    Anthem of the Seas
    Explorer of the Seas

    I am sure one of the experts can tell me if that is incorrect.

    Recently there have been quite a few cruise ships at anchor in Torbay.
    Arcadia, Azura, Ventura and QM2. It is said until October 15th.

    Cunard have cancelled their sailing programme until May 2021, so the three Queens will be hugging the south coast for a while yet.
