A Trip Up the River Medway

Ships

Last Sunday one of our intrepid photographers was out and about on the River Medway and got some great shots of our Scot Trader coming up the river.

Moving from location to location allowed him to see her from various angles and positions on the river as she approached Scotline Terminal Medway.

By luck, our Scot Mariner had also been discharged that morning and was just sailing, giving him a rare chance to see two of our ladies passing. (Click to expand photos)
