The next ships were just emerging from the fog when I saw them.
Western Neptune arrived after dark last night, and it will be the other streamer boat.
It had cleared off a bit by noon time when the next ship hove into view.
By late afternoon, when the sun was blazing happily between the clouds, it was time for Hoegh Masan to sail from Autoport.
The sun, and warm air temperatures (over land it reached 19C in Halifax) brought out the usual quota of the foolhardy.
The Coast Gard has started its summer rescue patrols in the harbour - I hope he did not need them.
