Juniper 2 in for bunkers (oh and Queen Mary 2 was here too)

In from Point Tupper, the tanker Juniper 2 arrived overnight and anchored in Bedford Basin for bunkers. She did not anchor in the lower harbour, giving Queen Mary 2 lots of room to arrive this morning, turn north of George's Island and tie up at pier 20 , bows south. 
Juniper 2 is registered in the Marshal Islands and was built in 2006. It carried the name Adonis until 2007, and Omega Princess until March of this year. It is owned in Hong Kong. It measures 23,270 gross tons and 36,660 deadweight tonnes. It was to sail this evening.

This lens filling view of the Queen Mary 2 was taken in 2007, from the old Halterm viewing platform - now gone. The new chain link fence and shortened end platform make this picture an impossibility these days.
