This little robin has sung a welcome to all the cruise ships these past few weeks. Even when he/she couldn't see them. That's Kingswear behind the chimney. Somewhere. Lost in the mists of time.

On Saturday morning things were not looking too good for an appearance in harbour of 142m long Le Boreal arriving from Guernsay. Ten minutes before this picture we couldn't see the river, let alone Kingswear. Bright sun on top of the mist made for a challenge to snap the moment. Not a great result, but you probably get the idea.

This house in Kingswear has long sported a large Swedish flag which has recently been replaced by this pennant.

A bit of research revealed that flags should only be flown on flag days whlst pennants can be flown at all times.

And in case you were wondering, the length of a pennant should be one third the height of the flag pole. It's good to know these things.

Quite a few interesting newcomers on the water. This is RNLB Herbert John. It's a Liverpool class RNLI lifeboat originally built in 1939 in Cowes and now restored to almost pristine glory. The cost in 1939 was £4054 9s 1d. Which nowadays would get you enough fuel for a serious search.
