For the last two days I have been based in Liverpool, yesterday I was close to the river near Tranmere and today I have spent most of my time in an office overlooking the Mersey not far from the Cruise Liner terminal.
Yesterday was not a good day for new ships, I did see the General Cargo Ship Sea Melody (as picture above, IMO 9006382, 2450, 1994) unloading in the main docks on my way into work but having checked her IMO number I have seen her before but under a different name (Marianne K).
Today has been better and I took a couple of photographs of ships entering and leaving the Mersey at lunch which just happened to coincide with high tide.
New ships seen today are the Bulk Carrier Christianna (IMO 9510319, GT43500, 2010) and Chemical / Oil Product Tankers Ayana (IMO 9395991, GT 12137, 20100 and Shannon Star (IMO 9503926, GT 8539, 2010).
Shannon Star was the only out bound ship and was heading to Rotterdam.
