They're trying to brighten up the barge with fairy lights

 

At first glance I thought it was the usual crop of bird sh*te that usually covers everything around the pier.

 

At least they're trying to make an effort, can't knock them for that. Although it'll be interesting to see what of its left come Monday morning.

Information

 

Much activity today - looks like the Kalmar is on the move.  She has been bounced around a lot these past couple of days and nights with the wind.  Dont know where she is being moved to but assume it is the new pier out past Northlink where the Bibby Bergen was due to go and where the Sans Vitesse was.

 

I felt so sorry for those on board

Well, I see they moved them in the end.

 

The barges look pretty good where they are now actually.... Quite in-keeping with the Ro-Ro terminal and Shetland hotel aesthetic. ;-)

 

And, of course, a lot safer for the barges themselves, as they seemingly found out once the first taste of a Shetland Gale was had. 

 

Now the good people of the barge are within hopping distance of the CO-OP, which I'm sure will appreciate the boost in sales, especially with Tesco's breathing down it's neck. And it's only a short stroll from the Marlex. A win-win for all, no?

Never mind, they're planning another one, *if* that's enough to appease the rabble's moans. Maybe the T will again have a good supply of punters living right on their doorstep if they can't find anyplace else to put her.

 

Enjoy the beautiful? view of the Great People's Republic of West Bressa while it lasts.....it could be gone and replaced with so much cheap aluminum sheeting again as soon as this bit o' a SE'r blaw eases.
