Hi Dambros12 -

One picture showing the ship is all that is required for a blog on the ' Daphne ' although I may post more on other subjects .

Others can of course add pictures to the blog !

The blog is one of three web sites I run besides also working as a director of two UK companies !

The ' Daphne ' anchored off of Port Said about 16.50 hrs UK time on Monday evening 19th May 2014.

Having been laid up for some time it is expected she will be inspected by the canal authorities before being allowed to transit the Suez Canal to the Red Sea.
