I spent my lunch break which amounted to about 20 minutes sat on the front at Pierhead and although the tide was out local Dredger WD Mersey (IMO 8123195, GT 1545, 1983) operated by Westminster Dredging went past me heading very slowly upstream and the Mersey ferry Royal Iris (IMO 8633712, GT 464, 1960) was busy doing her regular circuit of stops on both sides of the river.
Like me there were quite a number of people out enjoying the sun including quite a few from the cruise ship Boudicca (IMO 7218395, GT 28388, 1973) which was moored at the cruise ship terminal. She has since left Liverpool bound for Tobermorey.
Despite a busy work schedule I did see three new ships, Chinese registered Crude Oil Tanker Yang Mei Hu (IMO 9417165, GT 61630, 2010) was at Tranmere with container ship Kerein Schepers (IMO 9404077, GT 7852, 2007) and bulk carrier DS Commander (IMO 9088732, GT 26065, 1994) within the main basin at Seaforth. At the time of writing Kerin Schepers is on route to Dublin whilst the others are still in port.
