Rob and I decided to take a trip to the other side of the river to get a picture of the ship from the Starboard Side! We rode the Metro over to near about where we thought we'd be able to get a good picture...well it is a very industrial area and you couldn't get down near it well. One of the businesses directly across from the ship was open (it was a holiday in the UK - Boxing Day) but they were not very busy with trucks unloading and loading...so the gate guard was kind and escorted us up to the fence directly across from the ship!
So we got a fairly good picture of the ship, although it was a quite cloud covered day. Just drizzling and not really raining! So that was good. Still quite cold here! It was about 1-2 degrees Celcius and very damp. Brrrrhhh! We had a great time talking to the guard and he was quite friendly!
