YSE heads for Humberside

Our second North East trip of the year took us to the murky Humber on 16th May. Sunshine but few ships. FLUVIUS AXE was in Goole loading for Hamina, she got as far as Blacktoft on the afternoon tide.

LADY NOVA was more successful and after passing YSE at Blacktoft managed to reach the North Sea enroute to Amsterdam in ballast.

Crown Mary was in New Holland Dock.

. There were just two arrivals at Hull on the tide. Sormovskiy-3058 for Alexandra Dock from Riga with timber and Zealand Zaria for King George Dock with cement from Eleusis.

.

And beware if you are taking a minibus to King George Dock, the minibus will not go under the bar over the car park entrance and double yellow lines have now been painted on the full length of both sides of the access road.

Richard, it's not a plot to keep YSE away from the riverside, it's all part of tidying up the place as City of Culture (and YSE are very cultured), did you notice the fine avenue of trees (well, little shrubs) along the roadside?

Or the old coping stones and mooring rings near the car park? Will be handy on the next surge tide maybe :lol:

The stones are lunch-time seats for the Yorkshire Sandwich Eaters!
Will have to arrive by boat soon, not by van, due to all the closures along the riverside.

And I had the temerity to think that it was yet another plan to keep us away from the boats. How could we object to a city of culture?

Never mind, one of the advantages of an ageing work force is that one of our team is bound to have a disabled parking permit - and then I will not be faced with a half mile walk after I have parked the bus.
