Azura

Tiny LJI'm sure you are going to get tired of me wittering on about being in amongst all the 'big iron' in Southampton docks, but it is fun as there is stuff going on all the time.

Here's a stunning picture by Hythe Eye, showing the brand new cruise ship Azura.

Her naming ceremony and attendant fireworks were on Saturday.

I was going to post my own picture of the Azura, but Hythe Eye's picture is all the more interesting as, if you look closely, you can see a blue and white dot just above the bow of the Red Jet Ferry there. That tiny dot is Lady Jane!

Sort of puts things in perspective.
