PS Waverley - Paddling on the South Coast

A selection of pictures from a cruise on Waverley on 21 September from Southampton to Yarmouth via Portsmouth. 

First we see a fine selection of Britains Maritime Heritage Collection - from left to right the Tug Tender Calshot, Calshot Spit Lightship, Paddle Steamer Waverley and the Steam Ship Shiedhall. The block of flats in the background is apparently a cruise ship!

Great shots of Waverley Chris - so good to see the old boat still carrying passengers - think she's been up in Scotland during the Summer. Sue
