Foggy, Misty & Rainy In Southampton - 5 January 2011
Jan 5, 2011

There are some fabulous photos around the internet taken of the 6 cruise ships in Southampton during the lovely sunny morning weather;
ARCADIA, SAGA RUBY, BLACK WATCH, BALMORAL, QUEEN ELIZABETH and QUEEN VICTORIA.
However during the afternoon when I visited for a few photos, it was cold, misty, murky and raining! Sod at play :( Never mind, it all adds to the atmosphere, just you cannot see 6 ships in one photo.
Darkness came early, but the night views from Marchwood were OK as the fog lifted - 5 January 2011
