After the wet and windy weather at the start of the week, it felt good to see the sun back out. The many visitors on Emerald Princess, today's visitor to Greenock Ocean Terminal, must be glad they missed the stormy weather of Monday and Tuesday.
This was Emerald Princess's first visit to Greenock, although we are well used to seeing other ships from the same cruise line.
Cunard's newest liner, Queen Elizabeth, was welcomed to Greenock by one of our local tugs, Anglegarth, providing a spectacular twin water canon display. Not that we needed any more water than what mother nature was dropping on our heads.
A few brave souls came out to see her arrival and I would expect, weather permitting, that there will be a sizeable crowd around to watch her depart this evening.
