Picture of the year . . . so far. Norwegian Breakaway on her 27-mile journey from the shipyard in Papenburg, along the flooded River Ems to the North Sea. Click on the picture for a bigger version. The skies were threatening as the ship, travelling backwards, squeezed through locks with inches to spare, past road bridges which lifted to give just enough clearance, and through the tidal barrier at Gandersum. Spectacular!
