It was a day for white ships in Halifax.
This morning's departure was FS Monge, the French navy's missile range instrumentation ship, which sailed for St.John's.
When it was here last, I gave all the details and a little flashback to satellite tracking ships of the past.

This time I was able to see the ship from a different angle, and to spot the Alouette III helicopter 242
To add to the flashback from the previous post, here is the Soviet Akademik Sergei Korolev:
The arrival was Pacific Princess. It berthed bow north at pier 22, and on departure backed out into the number one anchorage and turned to sea.
Its next port of call is to be Reykjavik.
