2 days to go till the start of the weekend's activities. The James Watt Dock is looking completely transformed, although some parts still look rather rough. I hope The weather improves and that the whole event is as successful as the previous visit in 1999.
I missed the arrival of the first ships yesterday, but several more came in today with more to come tomorrow.
