MAY 2020 TVFTDO


Lockdown continues.  Dramatically reduced traffic on the road, in the air and on the wter.

So, yet another strange month for pictures.

By day two though, we already have two Lower Ferries working (yes, even that is exciting)

A distant sail past by the Queen Mary 2.

A very strange barge passing by. Again. And again.

And a man who has gone up a pole.(okay, so he was on a crane).

Plus masses of helicopters including what has to be the lowest ever flyby. A Chinook, no less.

There are 384 Photos in this album over 8 pages. Click on a thumbnail to see it larger and then if you want start a slide show.
